Teaching Cli-Fi in the Humanities - a new nonfiction academic book edited at the University of Oregon by Stephen Siperstein, Shane Hall, Stephanie LeMenager


Climate change is an enormous and increasingly urgent issue. This important book in 2017 highlights how humanities disciplines can mobilize the creative and critical power of students, teachers, and communities to confront climate change. The book is divided into 4 clear sections to help readers integrate cli-fi into the classes and topics they are already teaching as well as engage with interdisciplinary methods and techniques. Teaching Cli-Fi in the Humanities constitutes a map and toolkit for anyone who wishes to draw upon the strengths of literary and cultural studies to teach valuable lessons that engage with climate change.
