A Change in the Weather - How New is Cli-Fi and is it Science Fiction?

Cat Sparks
Venue: North Ballroom (Large Panel Room)
Tags: Does Not Need Moderator, presentation, Academic
Ends: 11:00

Is the new genre of climate change fiction, Cli-Fi science fiction or not and does it matter? Anthropogenic climate change is real and dangerous and, if left unchecked, is capable of rendering the Earth uninhabitable. Young adult dystopian literature has been gaining traction since September 11, 2001, peaking with Suzanne Collins’s successful Hunger Games trilogy and films. This paper will outline the ways in which science fiction has been exploring realistic ecocatastrophe scenarios for decades in tandem with social and political movements and concerns. It I will suggest that Cli-Fi is being used as a method of artificially distancing fiction classified as “literary” from perceived genre taint and will conclude that such quarantining procedures are more than just unnecessary; they may be potentially harmful. For all of us! Full abstract is online at https://2016.swancon.com.au/content/article/60
