dc.description.abstract In Parable of the Sower, a 1993 dystopian science fiction novel set in the wake of major climate change, Octavia E. Butler writes, “There is no end | To what a living world | Will demand of you.” Our collections, institutions, and communities have arisen from colonial and extractive industrial contexts - the same conditions and systems driving anthropogenic climate change. Our closing plenary examines how climate change relates to these systems’ legacies of harm, and how history, memory work, and speculative imagining illuminate possibilities for challenging these systems in order to build more sustainable and equitable living worlds. ----- Moderator: Robin M.
