Literary theory has contributed towards the recovery of marginalised narratives and discourses in literature during the last three decades. The word, ‘minor’ has acquired a resonance of its own in the context of ‘national’ literature which tends to be part of a ‘great tradition’. Against such a background, the recovery of diverse indigenous traditions has become an important task of comparative studies of literature. Nations emerged as ‘imagined’ communities. However, nation-states were not ‘imagined’ in the crucible of prolonged struggles of anti-colonial resistance in Asia, Africa and Latin America, but were born of the political exigencies of imperial powers.

Films have for a very long time been used to form a narrative that may oppose what the heteronormative society believes and that is why probably it is one of the most popular forms of artistic expression. When we think of films like Her or the Japanese anime Ghost in the Shell we see the use of technology in brilliant ways. It shows how easily humans are replaceable emotionally as well as physically. But how well do these films and many others like these refute the social conditioning that often clouds our visions? Is the world of cyborgs too dystopian for humans to survive in? Or just like any ‘other’ cyborgs and AI will just become another way for the powerful in the human world to exert dominance?

The climate crisis posits a major threat to the anthropocene regardless of geopolitical boundaries. However, Eurocentric discourses seldom acknowledge the resource exploitation that fuels climate change. This panel seeks to explore works of literature that highlight such instances of resource exploitation in the postcolony vis-à-vis the ideas of security and insecurity in the times of an emergent climate crisis. With a special focus on the specters of neocolonialism that threaten the security of postcolonial ecospheres, this panel seeks to decolonize the discourses of climate change that refuse to address the role played by Western ideology and capital in the rendering insecure of ecologies in the postcolony.
