In this presentation, professor Stephen Siperstein will explore how climate change literature, and particularly climate change fiction (also known as cli-fi), can be a source of radical hope in our burning world. Specifically, in creating a space for empathy, imagination, and even beauty, literature about climate change provides roots and routes: roots to understand the past and present systems that are driving the climate crisis and routes to chart a path to a more just and sustainable world.
