Andrew Hebard at Miami University of Ohio is teaching a ''cli-fi'' class this 2015 fall semester

This fall semester Dr Hebard is teaching an Honors seminar for first-year students on "Literature and the Environment." 

 The class ends with Margaret Atwood's ''Oryx and Crake'', Indra Sinha's ''Animal's People'' (which is more of an eco-disaster novel), and Ian McEwan's ''Solar'' (with some interesting papers on "Solar" being presented at this past summer's ASLE conference). The class will also be reading parts of Rob Nixon's book ''Slow Violence,'' which has also been assigned in a graduate theory seminar that Dr Hebard is also teaching.

NOTE FOR 2016: ''Next year I will probably teach an introductory course on popular literature that will have a major section (probably 1/3 of the course) on 'Cli-fi', Professor Hebard tells this blog.
