Imagining Futures

This interdisciplinary project brings together New York-based Transmedia artist and theorist, Thenmozhi Soundararajan and two faculty from Ci3’s Transmedia Story Lab, adolescent health researcher and physician, Melissa Gilliam (University of Chicago, Biological Science Division-founder of Ci3), and game designer and scholar, Patrick Jagoda (University of Chicago, English & New Media Studies) as they explore significant social, cultural, and political issues that will impact possible human futures through a series of experimental and interactive digital narratives. 

For their final projects, students in the Imagining Futures: Speculative Design and Social Justice course created games of various types exploring subject matters such as immigration, parenting, surveillance and prison. Images and descriptions of these projects can be found here:
