We stand on one side of a growing crevasse that separates "us" who know about climate change from "those others," who did not know. This course will deploy works of literature and cinema (primarily from the Romance languages) to think about the unique disruptions to embedded narratives; to develop tools and vocabulary for reading under the sign of climate emergency. Discussions will be in English. Students are encouraged to read in the original if possible. Authors may include: Antonioni, Calvino, Martel, Perec, Schweblin, Verne and Zola. Topics may include: Historiography, archives, mourning/solastalgia, scale, desertification and the model of compound interest in relation to narrative. Take-home writing assignments and seminar/research paper are required.
