Fallow Futures: A Short Story, Jonathan Hope 2018 Université du Québec à Montréal

Fallow Futures: A Short Story, Jonathan Hope

The Goose

What will the future be like? And how will humans live with, within the natural world? As we hear more and more of natural phenomena and land formations that are not only protected but also granted legal rights equivalent to those of humans (recently, the Whanganui River in New Zealand), couldn’t we imagine this trend extending to other-than-humans? Wouldn’t the already-ubiquitous grasses, that cover approximately 40% of the earth’s ice-free terrestrial surface, be a good candidate for such a project? In this piece of speculative fiction, humans and grasses together build a future world.

Things We Have In Common: Essays And Experiments, Willow Grosz 2018 Northern Michigan University

Things We Have In Common: Essays And Experiments, Willow Grosz

All NMU Master's Theses

Things We Have in Common is a collection of short stories, flash pieces, and image-text experiments that attempts, in the wake of the death of my mother, to excavate the relationship between memory and narrative, identity and belonging against a backdrop of the main forces that have influenced my familial group, namely generational poverty, a changing relationship with our Athabascan and Caucasian heritages, and the complicated ecology, geography, and culture of Alaska. Like many forays into memory, this project represents a joyous failure. Please read this collection as a love letter to Alaska.
