Professor Snell's university link:
After reading a tweet online from Professor Heather Snell at the University of Winnipeg in Canada about a link from Slate magazine about Netfix showing a cli-fi political thriller imported from Norway TV with English subtitles, I asked her for some more information and details about the movie series, and she sent me a note. Of course, in my email subject line, I wrote, simply: "Do you cli-fi?"
She replied a few seconds later in internet time, writing: "Yes! I teach cli-fi fiction for YA readers in my Children's Lit class, so yes! I mention your website and blog in my class, actually :-)

6 credit hours
MW 2:30 - 3:45An introduction to the study of children’s YA literature, this course explores the characteristics, treatment, and reception of this YA form of literature, unusually named for its readers rather than its producers.
We study various theoretical and critical strategies for reading YA texts, including feminist, queer, transgender, postmodern, posthuman, postcolonial, critical race, cli-fi and ecocritical; cultural assumptions about children and childhood; trends in educational theory and practice; the economic and political contexts of the production, consumption and marketing of YA texts for young adults; and popular culture and media for young adults. Texts from a range of genres, such as cli-fi, poetry, picture books, novels, blogs, and films, are considered, and students have an opportunity to help shape the course syllabus in Winter 2016 term.
