Australian Research Council funded Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) held by Dr. Sarah E. Truman. The project (2022-2025) focuses on speculative and science fiction as a method for thinking critically about the world and proposing different futures on the themes of technology, climate, and social justice.

The project foregrounds youth writing in metropolitan and mining communities in three countries (Australia, Canada, and Wales); features interdisciplinary discussions by authors and cultural theorists who use speculative thought in their research; and provides an online repository of speculative fiction on the project themes.
