New Course: FR0075 Global Fictions of Climate Change
As the planet gets hotter, a new genre has emerged to inspire action: climate fiction. In this course, students will read stories and watch television series and film that deal with the global impact of climate change. Explore a wide variety of creative work around the French-speaking world: the Caribbean, sub-Saharan and East Africa, Canada, and the Mediterranean. Join us as we learn about the Anthropocene, environmental racism, slow violence, petrofiction, and Afrofuturism.
Taught in English by Professor John Walsh.
