Reconfigured Temporalities Nature's Intent?

Nathalie Blanc and Agnès Sander

Keywords: ECOLOGY; NATURE; SPECULATIVE FICTION; TEMPORALITIES

Speculative fiction as a literary genre is a test of the renewed relation to nature presented as possible reality. The vision of nature presented by some science fiction and fantasy authors varies along these lines. The hypothesis underlying the present article is that these "speculative fiction–proposed natures" force us to rethink the rapport between time and space.
