  • Films as a Signal: The Shoplifters and the Transformation of the Japanese
           Family

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kevin Jae
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      The field of futures studies has done little work on analysis of films and movies, with the exception of the science fiction genre. There has been little attempt to wrestle with and analyze other film genres, integrating such analyses into futures studies. This article makes an attempt at bridging that gap by analyzing the 2018 Palme d’Or winning film Shoplifters by Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda. In the article, we examine the film as a signal of transformation in the Japanese family by comparing this new form of the family to the Japanese family in the past. Using Shoplifters as a guiding post, I contextualize the transformations portrayed in the film with research on and trends in Japanese society. By using Shoplifters, I show how we can use films as guiding posts and as valuable sources of information.

  • Haiku Horizons: Visions of Tomorrow, Creative Mindsets, and Artificial
           Intelligence-Driven Change

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Elissa Farrow
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      In an ever-changing technological landscape, organizations stand at a pivotal juncture, seeking to harness the transformative potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) while confronting the spectre of workforce upheaval. This study extends on an exploratory journey into the profound impact of mindset, drawing inspiration from images of the future. It delves into how these mental landscapes shape organizational responses to imminent disruptions ushered in by AI. Employing an innovative participatory research approach, participants reviewed previously created hand drawn images of the future to conduct a thematic analysis and haiku poetry contribution. Participants envisioned a world where AI implementation led to employee displacement. This essay extends on this transformative research journey and showcases participant-generated summative poetry contributions. The essay deepens the profound relevance of cultivating creative and anticipatory mindsets within people as they navigate AI-induced disruptions.

  • A Quantitative and Qualitative Exploration of Futuristic Narratives on
           TVTropes.org

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Simeon Spearman
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      This paper embarks on a methodical exploration of TVTropes.org, a comprehensive crowd-sourced wiki that documents storytelling conventions across various forms of media, with a special focus on representations of artificial intelligence and future scenarios. The study delineates the multifaceted nature of the platform, asserting that its offerings extend beyond mere television tropes, and explores its potent applicability for futurists and scholars. Through the strategic application of web scraping and data analysis, this research quantifies diverse aspects of science fiction media and the embedded tropes therein. The paper underscores the pivotal role of tropes in shaping societal perceptions and influencing discourse, particularly in the realm of futuristic thinking, using instances such as the impact of “The Terminator” franchise on military strategic thinking as a case study. Furthermore, the research engages in a quantitative analysis of trope density and frequency within science fiction works, offering a nuanced understanding and uncovering patterns in storytelling conventions. This study thus offers a foundational framework for understanding, categorizing, and analyzing the influential images of the future that permeate today’s media environment, thereby providing a valuable resource for futurists, researchers, and media scholars in their respective endeavors.

      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      This article chronicles the experiences and lessons learned in establishing strategic foresight (SF) in a U.S. government organization. This has value to the field of foresight, which is seeking to establish foresight in organizations as an intentional capability to explore alternative futures and work towards preferred futures. This work also has particular value to other federal agencies establishing or considering establishing a SF practice.

  • Journaling About the Futures- Personal Reflection From the Research
           “About Time”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Justyna Doherty
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      The research initiative titled “About Time” undertaken at the Institute of Art, Design + Technology (IADT) in Ireland, sought to develop and assess design-led methods aimed at shaping and influencing attitudes towards the long-term future. The primary focus was influencing behaviours concerning individual futures and the planet. This study encompassed exercises and experiences to explore the intricate connections between past and future, delving into the multidimensional nature of time, art and creativity. Additionally, it aimed to foster positive futures and long-term thinking, reflect on ways to respond to global uncertainty, effect transformative change, and open new dimensions of understanding. The outcome of this research is The Barometer - a template of a journal/sketchbook intended to facilitate deep contemplation of the subject of time and the futures. Filled with creative tasks and prompts, it serves as a vehicle and tool to enhance futures literacy in participants. Seamlessly blending foresight, art, and creativity it extends a playful invitation to engage in reflection, futures thinking, speculation, and world-building. It also serves as a starting point for fostering long-term thinking, by establishing a close emotional connection to future generations, as well as nature connectedness, while addressing the challenges posed by the climate emergency. In this reflection, the author of the study offers insights into the research process, the underlying concept of the journal, and feedback obtained from the test group. The reflection delves into the synergy of creativity and art with future-focused journaling portraying it as a means to enhance futures literacy capabilities. Furthermore, this approach represents a significant stride in fostering sustainable practices and holds the potential to become a robust support tool for resilience, particularly in the face of uncertainties, trauma, and challenging circumstances.

  • Eve

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jai Heiner-Wright, Cat McNicholl
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      The arts have had a historical relationship with holding technology accountable through artists’ speculation on its harmful and redemptive characteristics. As young futurists born into an age where Artificial Intelligence (AI) and related processes have become increasingly integrated into society, we wished to utilise this tradition to engage with contemporary anxieties concerning AI’s role in the potential automation of the creative industries. Using the comic book medium, we speculate on how this automation may prove to be an extension of capitalist exploitation through the story of Eve. Simultaneously, we embrace the more redemptive aspects of this technology’s use. We celebrate non-exploitative ‘machine’ art and the potential modes of expression that it may herald. This is as we do not wish to entirely foreclose the involvement of AI in art but simply question the effects such art may have under capitalism.

      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      These poems and one video danced poem explore the relationship between the sea, land and ecology and shift the relationship to the ecology and climate crisis through a visceral intimacy. The poems emerge from dancing, kayaking, swimming, walking, in liminal spaces between land and sea. The poems serve as an embodied and poetic place of inquiry. My invitation is for the reader to walk along the shore of a poetics of the sea, in hope that by paying attention to what we care for now will lead us into a future we desire.

  • Illustrating Tomorrow: The Role of Comics in Engaging Research
           Participants in Disruptive Futures Research

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Richard B. MacGeorge
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      This study examines the application of comics in futures research to involve stakeholders in infrastructure strategy discussions for disruptive futures. It employs a graphic novel called “Vanishing Point! Our Built World,” which augments generative AI art with human storytelling to transport participants into a speculative 2150 with a solarpunk theme. The narrative applies the concept of future-self continuity and a temporal discontinuity framework to promote visions of sustainability for both humanity and the environment. The research emphasises the ability of comics to foster meaningful discussions on future infrastructure coordination by incorporating Social Construction Theory, Social Construction of Technology Theory, and Actor Network Theory. Comics being adapted into videos and used in workshops highlight their effectiveness in promoting engagement and facilitating semi-structured discussions. This demonstrates comics as a dynamic tool in futures research and participatory methodologies. Relevant themes: Anthropocene, Ecocene and Climate Change/Post-capitalism/Utopias, Eutopias and Dystopias/Solar Punk and its relations/Artificial Intelligence and Automation/Wicked Problems/Futures and Metaphor/Reimagining Futures Tools and Methodologies. Statement acknowledging use of Generative AI Art and copyright ownership: “Vanishing Point! Our Built World” graphic novel artwork was created with Midjourney generative AI. These images were created using the author’s prompts and ideas. The author owns these AI-generated photos and their derivatives. Synthesia was used to create animated films and AI-generated avatars from comic artwork. Statement on the use of Generative AI in the production of this manuscript: Referring to Author Guidelines on Using Generative AI and Large Language Models Sage Learning Resources (sagepub.com), this manuscript employed various AI tools to assist with research and writing. ChatGPT4 and its plugin, Scholar AI, helped identify relevant literature in addition to traditional research. Litmaps revealed article linkages, clarifying the research landscape. ChatGPT4 critiqued the manuscript. Quillbot improved the manuscript's clarity and consistency by improving its language.

  • Works of Art and the Future

      Authors: Roberto Poli
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      Will adding an artistic layer to our future exercises eventually improve them' Why' How' Will this supposed improvement contribute to the entire exercise or only to some of its aspects' Moreover, will such an improvement have long-term, stable consequences or only momentary and occasional ones' The research question I would like to unfold may then be summarized by the claim “Works of art as gates to the future.” Unsurprisingly, this claim needs further qualifications, such as works of are always/often/occasionally/rarely/never gates to possible/preferable/obnoxious future. Furthermore, what does it mean to be a “gate to the future”' To make the future visible' To make the future understandable' To pave the way toward the future' This vast array of preliminary qualifications suggests that the question of the connection between works of art and the future is awfully tangled. I would be satisfied if this paper provides a frame to be eventually improved by subsequent works. Specifically, I would be happy to explain the first, basic question: why works of art may eventually improve futures exercises. I will focus primarily on Nicolai Hartmann, and secondarily on Roman Ingarden and Ernst Bloch. The conclusion I shall arrive at is that works of art can definitely improve futures exercises, because both aesthetic objects and the futures are unreal objects and presents irreducible points of indeterminateness.

  • The Iceberg in the Room: A Causal Layered Analysis of Self with the
           Futures Sense of Yearning

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Marguerite Westacott
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      This Futures focussed paper shares my creative response to a reflexive ricochet of being researcher, to unexpectedly becoming the researched and back again. I am currently using phenomenologically art-led and heuristic research methods to explore the implications of the Futures Senses in tertiary career education. The field of career theory is holistic and multidisciplinary. It draws from psychological, sociological and cultural fields to contextualise human action across the lifespan. Therefore, I work with people in transition and anticipation. This paper emerged from my immersion in the Futures Sense of Yearning and the moment I recognised the futures sense of Yearning in myself. This unexpected epiphany initiated a reflexive response as spectator of, and traveller on, my own transitional and anticipatory experience which was hovering in the spaces between the inner and outer self. Using a Jungian spontaneous drawing technique I set to give voice to what Jung noted as the ‘… two worlds: the world of the external perception and the world of the perception of the unconscious…’. This process revealed latent embodied knowing that surfaced through dialogue with the artwork. The layered emergent data of the artwork is analysed using a Causal Layered Analysis (CLA). The CLA invites diverse and layered perspectives of the subject of inquiry by examining it from the perspectives of litany, systems, worldviews and metaphor. Inayatullah uses an iceberg analogy, to illustrate the layers of an inquiry that are simultaneously exposed and discrete; known, unknown and ‘re-known’. Thus, a CLA of self is used, to reveal the ‘iceburg in the room’, with intention to explicate the meaning of the personal, as it relates to the collective.

  • From DeFault to DeSign: Symbols, Memes, Acronyms, Emojis, & Other
           Visual Cues Across Time

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Phyllis Araneo
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      This chapter explores the wild and wonderful visual world of iconic imagery including current day memes, acronyms, emojis and other common forms of visual communication. The study reviews a range of visual examples and their meanings beginning with the Renaissance through to futures and asks the questions Does imagery have an effect on reality' Can imagery be engineered to have a desired effect on futures' Data collection involves archetypal imagery that has appeared in the past, its meaning and influence on societies to the present-day explosion of optical bombardment through social media, screens and advertising, and their impact and influence on current culture. The data includes a look at conscientious, principled futures generated imagery and its possible connection to the creation of futures. Causal Layered Analysis (CLA) provides a comparative methodology for this investigation though enabling a comprehensive understanding of various possible interpretations of an image’s intention and perception based on analysis of graphic symbology. It does this in the form of a series of scenarios developed from the CLA. Analysis within the CLAs is sometimes aided by artificial intelligence. This is done by asking questions in ChatGPT and expanding/consolidating and/or chopping/changing the responses. From a surface peek at visual data to the depths of underlying meaning within the collective human psyche this analysis seeks to provide a provocative poke at our everyday overlooking of these day-to-day visual assaults. The study aims to offer refreshing insights into the power of an image and its ability to possibly affect thinking, feeling and action across the continuum of time into futures and what this may mean in this current pivotal era of consciousness.

  • When the Future Dies: The Here(After)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Juli Rush
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      Our futures are always dying and there are futures always being born. There is a liminal space in which we stand and experience both those deaths and births which send ripples through our multiplex systems. Drawing upon fields and tools such as thanatology, neuroscience, and trauma-informed care may allow us frameworks with which to manage not just how we think about the future but also how we feel about the future. There is a hallowed ground where the births and deaths of our futures exist and it takes both courage and creativity to stand there. As futurists, our job is often to sit bedside with others as they nurse and hospice their futures - both imagined and unimagined. Recognizing the skill needed to serve as container for individuals, systems, and the world requires something new from the field of Foresight and its practitioners. With the shocking, global loss from the Covid-19 pandemic, related individual micro-loss, the continuing climate decline partnered with increasing disruption, the world stands on the precipice of new understanding around grief and hope. Thoughtful consideration here allows us to better anticipate futures death and the transitional grief that often accompanies change.

  • Two Decades of Causal Layered Analysis: A Bibliometric Analysis and Review
           (2000–2022)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Abdul Wahab
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose: This study aims to analyze 292 peer-reviewed articles and conference papers on Causal Layered Analysis (CLA) published from 2000 to 2022. The paper delves into the scientific studies conducted over the past two decades regarding CLA. Design/Methodology/Approach: This bibliometric analysis offers a comprehensive overview of CLA research, covering trends, topics, influential authors, sources, universities, and journals. It highlights notable figures, such as Sohail Inayatullah and Ivana Milojević, recognizing their influence. The study also identifies the widespread utilization of CLA in futures studies (FS) and metaphor analysis. Biblioshiny, Excel, and Zotero were employed for analysis and mapping. Results: The findings reveal an increasing publication trend, while the number of citations has experienced a significant decline. Australia, the USA, Iran, Finland, and Taiwan are the top five countries with the most publications. Similarly, Sohail Inayatullah has the most publications and citations at the top. The Journal of Futures Studies, Futures and Foresight has published the highest number of CLA articles, while Foresight by Emerald has the most citations. In terms of author collaboration, the Single-authored studies outnumber co-authored studies. Originality/Value: Over the past decade, research on CLA has proliferated due to increased interest in futures studies and critical methods factors. The analysis also indicates constraints in data collection and biases in inclusion criteria, underscoring the necessity for future research to address these issues. This study furnishes a comprehensive overview of CLA research, enhancing understanding of the method and its implications for academic and practical applications.

      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      This poem is a reflection on the contradictions inherent to futures work. Pasts, presents and futures fold in on each other and this is reflected in the deliberately tribal image offered by Kristoffersson. In both image and poem lies biography and memory both personal and also epochal. Time is sticky and we must deal with that as best we can.

      Authors: Shermon Cruz, Nicole Anne Moura, Joanna Marie Lim, Michael Niel Angelo Bulatao, Ghelvin Auriele Aguirre, Joel Dela Paz
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      The simplicity of the futures triangle as a foresight mapping methodology belies its brilliance to draw out complex phenomena and ingenious ways of seeing the future. In the hands of those who eagerly and sincerely wish to discover profound and authentic futures, the method provides an elegant way to surface the obscure and emergent conditions of change from the past, present, and the future. Apart from being a scanning technique for foresight practitioners to activate the future in the present, it bestows upon its users an introspective and experiential journey of flow against the riptides of inertia and the stagnancy of default. The futures triangle provides an anchor for understanding how the three facets of the future influence the way we imagine possibilities and infer meaning from the interplay of hindsight, insight, and foresight. As a tool for building foresight capacity, it increases the capability to map, make sense, and connect the drivers of change among three time horizons. Through analyzing and questioning the dynamics and tensions of change, issues are collectively framed and contextualized from the community’s perspective. The shared experience from participants of workshops and facilitated conversations accentuates the usefulness of foresight in their field of work through a better understanding of futures thinking, gaining through effort a panoramic future view of consequential issues, and realizing that enacting the future is a necessity. This reflective piece on the Futures Triangle shares the authors’ insights, cases, and views on the value and the futures of the method. It offers suggestions on how to thoughtfully facilitate a purposeful and enriching Futures Triangle workshop.

  • Temporalizing Internal Consistency: Using the Futures Triangle as an
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Adam Cowart
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this paper is to propose the application of the futures triangle as an organizing device for emplotting future-oriented narrative ecosystems and that the plausibility of a particular future can be explicitly reframed through a storytelling lens as the internal consistency of the story about the future. The paper draws on research on futures and storytelling, as well as the application of the futures triangle in academic and organizational settings beyond the traditional mapping phase of the six pillars. The paper then provides examples of applications of the futures triangle in three case study vignettes, as a method for surveying assumptions of change in narrative systems, audience reception in experiential futures stories or “sparks” and transition design stakeholder persona creation. The paper concludes by arguing that re-employing the futures triangle as an organizing device for contested story systems can support richer and more nuanced narratives about the future to emerge that are both plausible and challenge audiences and stakeholders by maintaining internal consistency.

  • Contextualising Conflict: The Futures Triangle

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ivana Milojević
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      This article offers an overview and theoretical analysis of the practical applications of the Futures Triangle framework, drawing insights from multiple case studies. It commences with the case study of “The Equal Crossing Initiative,” which resulted in the installation of a female pedestrian light symbol at the intersection of Flinders and Swanston Streets in Melbourne on March 9, 2017. The analysis of public opinions on this initiative reveals a diversity of views, with many expressing strong opinions. Major Australian newspapers, non-scientific surveys, and social media platforms reflected a spectrum of reactions, ranging from enthusiastic endorsement (“how cool is this'”) to critical perspectives that deemed it overly politically correct, questioned the allocation of funds, the necessity of gendered symbols, and even the attire of the female figure. Building upon this case study of community conflict, the article then explores the application of the Futures Triangle framework to better comprehend resistance to progressive social initiatives and to address the challenges inherent in social change efforts. It posits that the Futures Triangle offers a valuable tool for conflict resolution, fostering a deeper understanding of backlash dynamics, and enhancing the likelihood of successful implementation of innovative initiatives. Finally, it emphasizes the significant connections between change agents and change progression scenarios method, as elucidated in previously published texts.

  • The Futures Triangle in the Workplace - Using Strategic Foresight to
           Anticipate, Plan for and Respond to New Challenges in Business

      Authors: Victoria Mulligan
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      The future of work is constantly evolving and changing, making it increasingly challenging for businesses to anticipate and respond to these changes. Strategic foresight, the process of systematically exploring the future to identify and understand potential opportunities and threats, has become an essential tool for organisations that want to remain competitive and adapt to the changing nature of work. This paper focuses on the futures triangle tool, a widely used strategic foresight tool, and provides examples of how it can be used by organisations to prepare for the future of work.

  • The Futures Triangle: Origins and Iterations

      Authors: Sohail Inayatullah
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      This article presents a genealogy of the Futures Triangle. The method's evolution is explained. Problems, iteration and benefits are presented. The Futures Triangle is a simple method to map three competing factors: the pull of the future, the push of the present, and the weight of history. It can be used as a stand-alone futures method or in conjunction with other methods such as Emerging Issues Analysis, Causal Layered Analysis, or Scenarios.

  • Using the Futures Triangle to Infer Images of the Future of Food and
           Agriculture in the Southern Cone: The Case of Argentina

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Diego Gauna, Susana Márquez, Soledad Puechagut
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      The different perceptions of food and agriculture stakeholders about the future is a key input to design future-oriented public policies and to build a shared vision of the future. By applying the futures triangle to the results of a qualitative study concerning the future of food and agriculture innovation system in Argentine, five archetypes of images of the future were inferred. The archetypes reflect a distinct combination between the weight of history, the pushes of the present and the pulls of the future, corresponding to the perception of the future of nine distinct stakeholders of the food and agriculture system in Argentine. The archetypes are named: stuck in the present, the future is not ours, the future never comes, the future is being built and the future is ours. The analysis show that the stakeholders can envision the future of the world’s agriculture with a certain degree of creativity. However, they find it difficult to imagine the future of the Argentine agricultural industry in new ways: they repeat the old ideas or notions they have about it. All those visions lead to a demand for changes that are more connected to the present than to the future. This foresight study offers a first approach to explore the different views regarding the future of food and agriculture and it reveals how such views influence the type and characteristics of the new stakeholders demands to the public agriculture sector in Argentina to the year 2030.

  • The Co-Creative Futures Triangle: A Workshop to Build Shared Intent for
           Transformation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lavonne Leong, Kelly Kornet Weber
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      Although the Futures Triangle, developed by Sohail Inayatullah in the 1990s, has become a staple mental model for the futures/foresight field, it has not been well explored in the academic literature in the context of other futures tools. Here, the authors use a variation of the Futures Triangle as a springboard for foresight work in groups of any size, with a particular focus on facilitating the mindset shift that precedes organizational transformation. The authors present directions and an 80-stakeholder use case of the Co-Creative Futures Triangle, an effective tool to help diverse members of a system to co-ideate unique, positive futures created from a pool of shared values and current realities.

  • The Use and Usefulness of The Futures Triangle

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nur Anisah Abdullah
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      This paper presents the Futures Triangle as a framework to help guide thinking about the future. It works as a thinking tool or cognitive map, helping us interpret the past, orientate the present in charting our move to the future. This article uses four case studies to demonstrate the use and usefulness of the Futures Triangle for advancing futures studies in that it scaffolds the thinking about possible, probable and plausible futures, eliciting images of the future, interpreting the past and orientating the present, integrating knowledge and values for charting plausible futures, and increasing democratic participation in imaging desired futures. These case studies illustrates the effectiveness and utility of the Futures Triangle in enhancing futures studies and its potential for broadening engagement and understanding in the field.

  • A Movement Matured: Results of a Co-citation Analysis, and Some
           Reflections on the Relations Between Social Structure and Ideas in Futures
           Studies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Christian Dayé
      Abstract: World Futures Review, Ahead of Print.
      Scholars and practitioners have long criticized the inherent dominance of Western ideas in futures studies and claimed the need for a de-centering or decolonizing of the field. As a process of transforming science, de-centering occurs on at least two levels: at the level of thought and at the level of social structure. Sociologists of science, Science and Technology Studies (STS) scholars, and others have conducted research for many years on the interlinkages between social structures and knowledge structures and have developed several concepts to do so. In this article, I discuss some of these concepts and combine these theoretical conceptualizations with a co-citation analysis of recent publications in the futures studies. Based on a sample of futures studies publications that have appeared in the last ten years (n = 500) retrieved from the Web of ScienceTM database, a strongly inter-related network with four clusters can be identified. The works in each these four clusters are related in terms of their subject matter. They concern (1) the politico-intellectual program of futures studies, (2) their epistemological foundations, (3) questions of methodology, and (4) scenarios as the core technique of futures thinking. Both the works and their authors come from a broad variety of cultural backgrounds; they also display a relatively high number of co-citations with works in clusters other than their own. Taken together, these findings indicate that the information space sampled in this study to represent futures studies has already become de-centered to a large degree, both at the level of social structure and at the level of thought.
