ABSTRACT: As foreign language and (inter)cultural studies instructors, we have a duty to assist both our students and the communities with which we interact understand and cope with an increasingly technologized, globalized, and conflictive mid-twenty-first-century society. In the unpredictable context of 2068, community-engaged pedagogy can become an even more important progressive force for countering the dystopian tendencies we see around us today. If we confirm our commitment to the fundamental principles of personal responsibility and social justice that underlie our work, we may be able to envision and achieve a more sustainable and ethical democratic society in the future.
