In the first half of the lecture I will deal with Humboldt's take on nature and climate. Then I will present some works of critical response to the effects of technology and ecological damage taken from 19-20th century English, American and German literature. Finally, I will give an analysis of the various occurrences of climate change in literature through a number of fictional pieces from the past two decades.
