“Hope in Worse Futures?” Lecture at Nagoya University

Last Friday 21st of January, I was kindly invited to offer a public lecture on hope in dystopian fiction, transpacific cli-fi, and decolonial methodologies as part of the JACS Lecture Series of the University of Nagoya. I titled it “Hope in Worse Futures: A Comparative Exercise on Dystopias, the Climate Emergency, and Multicrises” and it links my most recent publications with my current ongoing project. The reception was fantastic and the feedback very helpful, thank you to the organizers, particularly professor Kristina Iwata-Weickgenannt, and the public for joining in.

The poster for the lecture gives a bit more details about what it was about:
