My favorite science-fiction novels cover social and/or political topics as well. Indeed in Germany there is an institute covering these topics and reserching: Institut fuer Technikfolgenabschaetzung.

Our pedagogical approach bootstraps the conventional role of the Arts and Sciences to construct new forms of research and practice alongside, within, and between the existing disciplines and technologies. The New Centre’s aim is a constructivist one, to assemble an environment, both virtual and actual, that inspires our members to invent alternate understandings that can be put into collective practice."

Comment by X:
    "i think the problem is that there is not a bridge and link between people that are doing valuable research within institutes and academia and the massive public. I believe that there is no need to do MEDIA RESEARCH or PRESS research, but
there is a need  to think and reflect HOW to bridge the gap between people who watch television and people who are not obedient in terms of following the mass public opinion. I think this is the real challenge.
Why I am saying this? In AMsterdam I have done internship at the best globally leading research institute - TNI - but they didn't have the proper link in networking the wider public opinion within EU. I think if they could accomplish this, a lot would be done."

+gal kirn @ICI BERLIN
The ICI Berlin is an independent research centre dedicated to exploring how diverse cultures can be brought into productive rather than pernicious confrontation.
The Institute enacts an expansive and deliberately dissonant understanding of culture that includes cultural formations (involving categories of class, gender, sexuality, and race) as well as fields of knowledge production (science, art, economics, law, media, politics).

Now that academics are required to be teachers, managers, media catalyzers, analysts, fundraisers, and social media animals: How do you strike a good balance between what is expected from you and what you want to do?
What conferences to attend? How to find the money to go there? Is it worth it to act as a peer reviewer? What publishers are best to target? Is publishing a chapter in an edited book worth the work?
This book is intended to help scholars to design and think strategically about their own career. Beginning with “How to get published in good journals,” it explores a number of questions that most academics encounter at various stages of their careers.

* <leo:
    """I am not dismissing all of the work produced in this and related fields, much of which is important, interesting, and, can we say, somehow, emancipatory, in many ways.   But this is one of the the hardest pill to swallow:
All the researchers, professors, writers, publishers, department heads, artists, curators, that comprises the Post-Colonial Academic Industrial Complex, who gain legitimacy and platform from endless papers explaining and righteously condemning the crimes of their ancestors, and who, for example, spend hours digging through colonial archives to choose some curiosity to make a research project or installation out of, living on grants from the likes of the Ford Foundation and their hydra-headed subsidiaries, are ultimately still feeding from the teats of colonialism and benefiting from its legacy.   
That's the material basis for, among other things, the unanimous support for neo-colonialism / imperialism in this sector."""
