Special Event

Fiction, Facts, and "Facts": How Novels and Film Shape the American Climate-Change Debate

Thursday, December 13, 2018 - 6:30 PM | Members' Room | open to the public | free of charge | advance registration required

Global warming is no longer a mere prediction. It’s here, now, and having catastrophic effects on our planet. So why aren’t more people talking about it? Writers and critics Jeremy Deaton, Omar El Akkad, Roy Scranton, Ashley Shelby, and Michael Svoboda, with moderator Amy Brady from Guernica Magazine, explore how climate change is fundamentally framed in popular culture—and how, in turn, popular culture helps shape our national conversations about the issue.

This event is co-sponsored by Guernica.
