Dystopia, Apocalypse and Contemporary Women's Writing

Professor Susan Watkins investigated the way in which contemporary women writers offer a fresh take on dystopian and apocalyptic themes.

Novels and films that imagine the end of the world as we know it have never been more popular, but what are the reasons for these visions of bleak, dystopian or apocalyptic futures? This talk investigates the ways in which contemporary women writers such as Margaret Atwood offer a fresh take on this trend.

The talk was filmed by Tomaso Aramini, a student from the Northern Film School.

This event was part of Leeds Cultural Conversations, a series of lunchtime talks organised by the Centre for Culture & the Arts. For more information on the series please visit the website.
