The goal of this site is to become a go-to resource for Teaching Cli-fi, packed with syllabi, reading lists, syllabus clusters, assignments, in-class resources such as videos, images, and or activities, slideshows, etc.
The page I’ve created for Kim Stanley Robinson’s Science in the Capitol trilogy (compressed as Green Earth) serves as an example of one I’d like to have for every book listed here. Continually updating these pages with new resources is another aim of the site.
If you have a syllabus to contribute, or if you’ve taught a class on or related to cli-fi, I’d be thrilled to hear from you and feature your work here. Send me an email, please: firstname.lastname@example.org
For now, here are two syllabi:
- Cli-fi: Climate Change, Science Fiction, and Apocalypse
- Spring 2015 class at Temple that led to the creation of this site
- Contemporary Environmental Writing
- Fall 2015 course taught by Caren Irr at Brandeis University
I also recommend checking out the module Cli-Fi: Climate Science in Literary Texts and the lesson plans that come with it.
