Counterfutures, peer reviewed and published biannually, is a multidisciplinary journal of Left research, thought, and alternatives. We aim to intervene in and inaugurate debates about how to understand, imagine and influence our society, politics, culture and environment.

Counterfutures seeks connections with the work of labour, trade union, Māori, Pasifika, global indigenous, anti-racist, feminist, queer, environmental, and other social movements in Aotearoa and internationally – with an especial focus on the Pacific.

Affirming the theoretical and intellectual diversity of Left thought, the journal brings together incisive, accessible, committed scholarly reflection, speculative, imaginative essays, long-format book reviews and interviews on the present and on future possibilities, and explorations of our current world moment in the formation of a new global Left.
