Short Abstract:

The panel explores world-building using anthropological methods multi-disciplinarily. It focuses on adopting multimodal methods to find alternative solutions, increasing preparedness for a futuristic world by observing behavioural patterns & action-oriented iteration to create a sustainable reality.

Long Abstract:

Anthropology tries to understand any kind of phenomenon that includes what has happened in the past, what is happening now, and what will happen in the future. Understanding the phenomenon, makes it simpler to predict future consequences, solve existing problems and create innovations. Anthropology has always tried to look into how societies sustain, whether by changing socio-cultural and economic behaviour, developing new technological methods, or even by assimilating changes in ways of living. Multimodal methods offer the opportunity for alternative realities to nurture robust solutions. These methods have enabled diverse ways of visual representation and efficient data capturing.

In this light, the panel explores world building through an anthropological lens multi-disciplinarily. It accommodates three questions:

1. How do multi-modal methods help in finding adoptable solutions to gain sustainability? (Employing visual and digital anthropological methods to acquire, document, and analyse data)

2. How behavioural patterns are analysed to address contemporary problems to increase preparedness for a futuristic world? (Analysing existing behaviour for better adaptation to changing environment to transcend smoothly into future. For example, the impact of AI in social life today to create preparedness for tomorrow.)

3. How iterative modeling is used to create a sustainable reality? (Inclusion of domain specialists to seek a holistic perspective for a clearer vision of how solutions look before implementation. Topics range from issues of daily living to global problems of climate change.)

We invite research studies and ongoing attempts that are on and around these grounds.
