Giving up

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this essay examines a variety of visions of apocalypse and civilizational collapse, asking how we can imagine a world without us (as in Alan Weisman's book of that title), or whether we will merely eke out a post-climate disaster existence like the one predicted in Ursula K. Le Guin's 1974 novel The Dispossessed.
