Conference – Imagining Climate Change: Science and Fiction in Dialogue
October 8-10, 2015
Imagining Climate Change: Science and Fiction in Dialogue brings together French and American science fiction authors, graphic novelists, scholars, physical scientists and researchers, to discuss the effects of climate change on the physical environment and the human imaginary. As we move into a warmer, drier, and more unstable global climate, climate studies will be more central to our scientific understanding of the world. The distinctive literary form of our time, science fiction bridges elite and popular cultures and engages enthusiasts and critics alike. The study of science fiction is uniquely suited to lively and productive debates of questions of concern to scientists and humanists tasked with forecasting our futures.
More information will be available soon.
