Writing Catastrophe/Centering Realism: Textualizing Capitalism’s Disasters

updated: 
Tuesday, September 20, 2022 - 9:23pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

In the current moment, there is no paucity of catastrophe writing. From apocalyptic speculative fiction, cli-fi, and other textual forms of disaster writing, catastrophe is too often conceived of as environmental events or disasters that already have occurred (tsunami; forest fires; hurricanes and floods) or will reliably occur in the future. Part of the problem with this textualization is that catastrophe often is seen as an event rather than a process. More pointedly, our critical attention has been (understandably) trained on the effects and harms of climate change rather than on capitalism’s disastrous drive for surplus extraction that renders life unlivable for millions in the here and now.
