Issue 9 of Unpsychology Magazine is based around the theme of IMAGININGS, deadline 12th February 2023
Following Unpsychology Magazine’s epic Anthology of Warm Data (issue 8), we are following up with an equally ambitious project; one which aims to reimagine the present within and beyond social, ecological and multispecies contexts. We are inspired by fictions and speculations and invite creative responses to these themes and musings.
This unpsychology project has long been concerned with imagining how things can be different in the here-and-now, and not just in some utopian or dystopian future. SF (in all Haraway’s variations) reaches back and forward in time in order to make sense of how human minds are co-present with the lives and minds of non-human kin, and with the Earth itself.

Haraway, and other writers, practitioners and artists are inviting us to move beyond spiritually infused narratives of Gaia, transformation and magical thinking towards a kind of ‘tentacular’ animist materialism, a messy and playful socialism of the mind, an anarchic soul-making that recognises the multiple layering and interdependencies that make up our reality and consciousness.
The relational ‘now’ is a difficult place to find ourselves in, yet only out of the spaces between the people, places and multispecies companions will emerge responses that will, in turn, take us into the foggy time we call our future. We might, (after Donna Haraway) call these practices of ‘worlding’ or (after Nora Bateson) ‘warm data’ – getting down and dirty into the soul-making, kin-making, story-making and composting of complex ecologies of mind.
