ENVS 058. Climate Fiction


(Cross-listed as ENGL 058 )
Climate fiction responds to the immensity of climate change through a variety of modes including journalism, dystopia, speculation, black comedy. As we read climate fiction that grapples with crises from the Dust Bowl through imaginary (yet not implausible) apocalypses, we will hone skills of thinking, writing, and speaking critically about cultural forms and social structures entangled with our changing climate and environment. Authors include John Steinbeck, Octavia Butler, Margaret Atwood, Junot Diaz, Richard Powers, Kim Stanley Robinson.
