FYS: International Climate Fiction: Start Here

Can reading save the planet? Information and resources for Erika Berroth's First Year Seminar

The literary genre of Climate Fiction, Cli-Fi, is emerging in the space between art, science and political decision-making. We already know that extinction video games or films like Avatar reach and move people differently than scientific data. 

In this seminar we will explore how connecting climate science and human choice, art and culture can play significant roles in bringing the future into our present.

How can Cli-Fi make readers feel and think now and promote future-oriented actions? How does international climate fiction connect us across cultures and invite us to see, to care, and to act?
