Briohny Doyle, “Postapocalypse Now”
October 4, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm| Humanities 1, Room 210
Briohny Doyle’s research positions the postapocalyptic imagination as a reply to apocalyptic forms that obliterate & totalize. Her work considers postapocalyptic literary & theoretical texts that move beyond revelation to consider the various breakdowns of capitalism through potent figures like the ruin, the virus, & the nomad.
Briohny Doyle is a Melbourne-based writer and academic. Her debut novel, The Island Will Sink, is the critically acclaimed first book published by The Lifted Brow. Her first book of nonfiction Adult Fantasy is out through Scribe in 2017.
