Climate in Crisis: Reading into the Environmental Emergency (Film and Literature)
September 24 at 9am
This panel explores the stories being told in response to the climate crisis, including analysis of eco-weird stories manifesting the fear and anxieties of climate change. While the discussion will be wide ranging, it will grapple with questions about whether or not Eco-SF predicts the future or models potential scenarios and how water scarcity could be the driving force of our dystopic future. The discussion will be built around close readings of texts including All Quiet in Vikaspuri, a graphic novel by Sarnath Banarjee, Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series, and the filmography of globally acclaimed, Academy Award winning director Bong Joon-Ho.
Duration: 90 minutes
