Second Edition


“Short, useful, and often delightful.” • Science Fiction Studies

“This book raises some interesting questions about anthropological engagements with the future…[and] opens up provocative and controversial avenues of thought and investigation.” • JRAI

“Though All Tomorrow's Cultures is at its heart a scholarly text, its revelations are sure to fascinate not only diligent students of human culture but also anyone with a keen interest in creating or reading literature that imagines the future of humanity. Highly recommended especially for college library and anthropology shelves.” • Midwest Review


The first edition of All Tomorrow’s Cultures explored the legacy of futures-thinking in anthropology and marked the beginning of a resurgence of interest in anthropological futures.  The new edition has been updated to reflect some of the outpouring of work since then, particularly in science and technology studies and in anthropological analyses of indigenous futures.  In addition, Collins has updated the final chapter to expand the field of anthropological possibility in an age of both despair and hope.

Samuel Gerald Collins is Professor of Anthropology at Towson University.  His research includes urban studies, social media, design anthropology and information technologies in South Korea and the United States. Among other books and articles, he is the co-author (with Matthew Durington) of Networked Anthropology (Routledge, 2015).
