Fictional narration has always been used to deal with topics of its time and natural disasters and dystopias are recurring themes in films and books.

How are crises, doomsday and apocalypse depicted in a time marked by pandemics, permafrost, plastic-filled seas and fake news? How are crises and disasters described, what forms and measures are used and whose perspective and concerns are expressed? What happens to the language in these stories? These are some of the questions that The Seed Box Research leader Jesper Olsson touches on in the latest episode of the podcast Fakultet Essä. The episode is in Swedish.
