Other Futures

Malka Older

‚ÄčAuthor, scholar and humanitarian relief worker Malka Older has experience with future scenarios for disaster areas. She has also built up a fast-growing literary oeuvre, imagining new worlds to help us improve the one we live in. Recently asked about the future of aid work, she answered by writing a speculative story about an earthquake in Mexico in 2051. For Other Futures, she will elaborate on the fact that we already use speculative fiction in economic and weather forecasts, without being aware of it: Unpredicted Fictions.
