Ecoterrorism in recent climate fiction

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


Ecoterrorism is widely discussed – and sometimes practised – by environmental activists, but rarely represented in climate fiction. This essay explores three recent ‘cli-fi,’ novels which do in fact address the issue, one from Finland, one from the US, and one from Australia: Antti Tuomainen’s The Healer (2013), in Finnish Parantaja (2010), Kim Stanley Robinson’s The Ministry for the Future (2020) and J.R. Burgmann’s Children of Tomorrow (2023).
