¿Que pasa, Calabaza? Today Amos and Ex discuss their respective experiences south of the United States–Cuba for Ex and and Argentina-Chile-Bolivia-Peru for Amos–as a way into a discussion on the future, the center, and the periphery of postmodern culture. And if it is true, as J.G. Ballard noted, the “the periphery is where the future reveals itself,” then perhaps the future is taking shape in North Dakota, which despite being the geographical center of North America remains on the periphery of American society in a host of ways.
