Professor Johan Höglund receives 2,8 million SEK from Formas for the project "Future Food Imaginaries in Global Climate Fiction"."

Professsor Johan Höglund receives 2.8 million SEK from Formas, the research council for sustainable development, for the project Future Food Imaginaries in Global Climate Fiction.

The project is motivated by climate research that shows that the present global food system and Western ways of eating must be transformed to halt the erosion of planetary resources and ensure access to food (Willett et al., 2019). The purpose of the project is to study how the genre climate fiction imagines that human society will respond and adapt to this profound and imminent transformation of current food systems. The project analyzes climate fiction from three different regions where the climate crisis is experienced very differently: the Nordic countries, North America and Sub-Saharan Africa. Theoretically and methodologically, the project combines ecocritical and postcolonial perspectives with critical food studies.
