See it before it's gone: Last Chance Tourism and Environmental Crisis

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskning

Abstract

In this presentation, I consider Shauna O’Meara’s ‘On Darwin Tides’ from 2016 and as an exploration of local narratives of climate change, which evoke the unsettling Gothic tone associated with the uncanny and the weird, to activate the sense of anxiety around systematic climate change, with the hope that such strategies will allow the conceptual changes on the local level vital to ameliorating the global effects of the climate crisis. In this vein, my focus is on how the specific strategies in this narrative – the framing of human and non-human characters; considerations of migrations, life loss, and otherness; and the haunting undertones of the framing of Last Chance Tourism – cause the reader to reconsider our relationship with nature.
