Other Editions of This Title:
Today, real-world social movements helmed by Indigenous people and people of color are leading the way against the greatest threat to our environment: the fossil fuel industry. Their stories and movements—in the real world and through science fiction—help us all better understand the relationship between activism and culture, and how both can be valuable tools in creating our future. Imagining the Future of Climate Change introduces readers to the history and most significant flashpoints in climate justice through speculative fictions and social movements, exploring post-disaster possibilities and the art of world-making.
About the Author
Praise For Imagining the Future of Climate Change: World-Making through Science Fiction and Activism (American Studies Now: Critical Histories of the Present #5)…
"Incredibly well-researched and notably conversant with the intricacies of both key sf writing and activism from the inception of environmentalism movements and their related speculative contemplations to those in the present day, Streeby’s Imagining the Future of Climate Change is an indispensable text in working to turn the dystopian now toward more positive and inclusive means of fostering world community-building as we labor together to engage with the climate future we have wrought."
