Climate Change Fiction (ep. 4): A Conversation with Amitav Ghosh

Date: 11th May 2024
Time: 1:30 pm GMT/ 7 pm IST

Please find the link to join the webinar in bio!

Last three sessions have discussed climate change fiction’s speculative capacities, examined imaginative responses to the alienation between humans and nature through these areas of speculative fiction, and discussed the anthology Ecoceanic: Southern Flows in this context.

In this session, Ashish Kothari of Kalpavriksh and the Global Tapestry of Alternatives will be conversing with Amitav Ghosh, celebrated author, about issues such as:
– What is the range and scope of climate fiction from and on South Asia?
– What is its potential for influencing actual action on the climate crisis?
– In the writing of books like The Hungry Tide and Gun Island, what were your main motivations – stimulating and entertaining readers, getting them to think about climate, conservation, justice issues, or something altogether different?
– What are your thoughts on climate fiction such as ‘Ministry for the Future’?
