Public lecture: Climate Fiction

Clifi lecture.jpgOn November 3rd I was delighted to give the opening talk at Cli-Fi 2018, a Dutch festival on climate and literature, aimed specifically at young people.

In my talk, I discussed climate fiction as a genre, how humans have always written about climate, and how the genre has recently become popular. I focused in particular on what makes stories and literary narrative special, and compared them to the stories told by disaster films.

I enjoy giving these public lectures, both in Dutch and English. If you’d like to contact me about a lecture, you can do so through this form.
