Afrofuturism: Archive

Dr. Nelson’s work on Afrofuturism began in 2002 with a scholarly message board, and at some pont grew to a ground-breaking Afrofuturism Issue in Social Text (read her entire post to get access to it for $30, or at least the citation information for later retrieval at your local university library through Project MUSE). Make no mistake: my own research on Afrofuturism owes much to the work and solid ground established by Dr. Nelson and others who came before me. I am excited to see what future/s emerge as we continue to innovate and explore–and imagine. Do check out Dr. Nelson’s more recent blog entries on her current research!
