Climate Fiction Reading Group

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.

Upcoming seminars (2020). To register, follow the links below.
