Meteotopia Futures of Climate (in)justice
Co Futures & Future Fiction
A collaboration between CoFutures and Future Fiction Edited by Bodhisattva Chattopadhyay,
Ana Rüsche and Francesco Verso
Meteotopia serves as a focus for several con- cerns we have in the project CoFUTURES: Global South futurisms, environmental futures, climate justice, and thinking from the margins. The spaces of fiction and fictionality also allow us to play with the concerns of our presents but not merely from an academic perspective, but from an inspirational and aspirational perspective to imagine better fu- tures. Putting together this anthology thus has been a labour of love: eight different works of fiction are on offer, with writers from Botswana, Brazil, Nige- ria, Senegal, Mexico, Phillippines, and India. Some writers are established names, others lesser known to the non-Anglophone world. There are also works in translation here.
