Sarah Smith,
This talk considers fictional and poetic literary engagement by island writers from the Pacific and Indian Oceans. We first ask: what can imaginative fiction do in the face of extreme weather and climate catastrophe? What is the role of narrative fiction in drawing attention to and facilitating creative solutions to challenges such as climate change, militourism, hydrocolonialism, resource extraction, etc.? How does literature empower us to think creatively about how to construct sustainable futures?

Dr. Julia Frengs is the Associate Professor of French and Francophone Studies.
