Two presentations on contemporary dystopian SF, particularly post-holocaust scarcity narratives. Spires covers fiction that puts food front-and-center and considers socio-political implications of who gets to eat and who doesn't in a dystopia. Potts contrasts post-Soviet Russian dystopian fiction with modern US fiction of the same time frame.
