讲座简介

Reading literature in a time of climate emergency can sometimes feel a bit like fiddling while Rome burns. Yet, at this turning point for the planet, scientists, policymakers, and activists have woken up to the power of stories in the fight against global warming. In this lecture, I range across four thousand years of world literature to draw vital lessons about how we put ourselves on the path of climate change―and how we might change paths before it’s too late.

From the 
Epic of Gilgamesh and the West African Epic of Sunjata to the Communist Manifesto, I read world literature as an archive of environmental exploitation but also as a point of departure for a new relation to our environment. Literature depends on millennia of intensive agriculture, urbanization, and resource extraction, from the clay of ancient tablets to the silicon of e-readers. Yet literature also offers powerful ways to change attitudes toward the environment. I will uncover the ecological thinking behind the idea of world literature since the early nineteenth century, propose a new way of reading in a warming world, show how literature can help us recognize our shared humanity, and discuss the possible futures of storytelling. If we are to avoid environmental disaster, we must learn to tell the story of humans as a species responsible for global warming.
