North-South Climate Futures

We are all looking at a probable future deeply marked by climate change. A new key faultline will likely divide humanity  into the ‘climate priveleged’ and the ‘climate precariat’. How is this gulf reflected in cultural texts, comparatively? How are climate grief, fury, hope, injustices and resistances negotiated creatively in different localities?

North-South Climate Futures is a three year research project, taking a ecocritical look at pan-African and Norwegian speculative texts and cultural contexts. It asks: What work is futuring doing, both in the very North and South, now that the alarming realities of climate change are upon us?
