Tales From The Leeds Library S2E1 Feat. Professor in the School of Cultural Studies and Humanities and Director of the Centre for Culture and the Arts at Leeds Beckett University, Susan Watkins

Welcome back to Tales from The Leeds Library! Kicking off our second season is a fascinating conversation with Susan Watkins. We talk about her work on contemporary women's post-apocalyptic fiction and what post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction can tell us about our current world. We also discuss the posthuman, women and aging and why, when we so often feel like we are living in the 'end times', do we turn to post-apocalyptic fiction for answers.

The Opening and Ending Song is Book Bag - E's Jammy Jams which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbeUbgO2AJc
