Future Anterior approaches historic preservation from a position of critical inquiry, rigorous scholarship, and theoretical analysis. Guest edited by Ijlal Muzaffar, this issue looks at ways in which problems of preservation help us pause and reexamine what we understand by the term “globalization” and, conversely, how different ways of thinking about globalization press us to rethink the practices of preservation itself. By shifting away from institutional critique, they discover preservation in unsuspected places, where various understandings and experiences of globalization are in formation and contention.

Contributors to this issue include Manish Chalana, Qin Shao, William J. Glover, Paola Demattè, Janike Kampevold Larsen, Winnie Won Yin Wong, Janna Israel, George Wheeler, and Roger Hiorns.
