Project: Imagining Climate Change: Fiction, Memory, and the Anthropocene

2016-01-01 – 2019-12-31

Abstract

This project explores how imaginative literature has responded to the representational and existential challenges posed by climate change. Consisting of a formalist, a historicist, and a postcolonial strand, it combines theoretical argument with case studies of Anglophone literary texts exemplifying major trends in climate fiction or “cli-fi,” particularly to do with issues of memory.
