Fall 2016 university classes on cli-fi

2085-1 Lavender, I

Science Fiction Studies

Cli-Fi or Environmental Science Fictions

Humanity has polluted the oceans, altered the atmosphere, and caused both plant and animal species mass extinctions, among other impacts on the environment. Have we permanently altered/changed/damaged our planet? The term Anthropocene denotes our current geological era in which human activities have become a telling factor in global environmental change. Has the human epoch doomed us? When science fiction consequently goes green, it produces fascinating climate fictions or cli-fi. We will consider types of ecological degradation in this course as we explore the close relationship between science fiction, ecology, and environmentalism.
