2113: Can we see the future in the present? In this class we won't become psychics, but we will use developments, trends, and "futurecasting" to offer informed assessments of life and the economy in 50-100 years. Futuristic movies will allow us to examine concerns about the future as a window into present-day culture. We will converse via Skype with Japanese students to exchange views. Final projects will offer projections of the future with the option of making a short movie. What will the future bring in your life, your community, and your world? No books or special software will be required.
