Artistic Session: Fiction and Degrowth
The aim of this session is to bring together people who are active or interested in the degrowth movement and who are either writing fiction or are interested in bringing some fiction into degrowth writing. After some readings of degrowth fiction there will be room for discussing topics such as: What do the texts do with you as a reader/audience? What is different to approaching similar topics through academic texts? What importance has fiction writing for degrowth? What is a potential role of fiction writing for social movements? What can popular fiction or fantasy such as Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings or The Dispossessed mean in a degrowth context? The session will finish with time for project planing.
