From cataclysmic natural disasters to unsuspecting plagues – one thing is clear – the world is going to end, and soon! How do these writers imagine a post-apocalyptic society and what does it tell of our relationship with the environment, science and the unknown? An eclectic panel of writers who are either masters of the genre or are exploring its possibilities. How do they imagine their dystopian world in their novels in the age of climate change. With Claire Vaye Watkins, Jeff VanderMeer, Emily St. John Mandel and Alexander Weinstein.
