The Floating World. A seminar on the book by Morgan C. Babst
A growing number of literary fiction is using climate change as a central theme. We meet once a month at Biskopshuset for a breakfast seminar to explore how climate change is lived, approached, and told. Taking the novel as a starting point we delve into topics on why it is difficult to let go of the known, on loss, anger and grief, and desirable visions of a future. Anyone interested is welcome but registration is mandatory. We have a few copies of each novel that you can borrow, first come first served.
In this story we move from the future to one of the past events that is a significant symbol for what climate change entails, the hurricane Katrina. Breakfast will be served at 8.30.
It is no longer possible to register for this event. Contact Alexandra Nikoleris if you have any questions regarding the seminar or the book seminar series in general.
