This proposed special session will examine the events, geographies, temporalities, and genres of Global Climate Change. In the wake of 5th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), this session will ask how the technical language of risk assessment—"exceptionally unlikely" to "virtually certain"—is narrated in different media to capture the unfolding and impending harm to humans and non-humans?; how can the imperatives of global social justice be addressed alongside pressing environmental crises?; what frameworks might address the uneven geographic distribution of harms and articulate the incremental yet inevitable pace of sea-level rise, desertification, and biodiversity loss?
