Florida-based author Jeff VanderMeer presents “Area X: Storytelling in the Anthropocene” at the UH Honors College, followed by a Q&A session. VanderMeer’s New York Times-bestselling trilogy Southern Reach blends speculative fiction, eco-fiction, metafiction and horror, and has earned him a Shirley Jackson Award and prompted the New Yorker to dub him today’s “weird Thoreau.” http://www.jeffvandermeer.com/ “Cargo and Carriers: Sites, Zones and Borders,” presented by the UH Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts (CotA), is an interdisciplinary series featuring lectures, performances, screenings and workshops by renowned visiting artists and scholars. Presentations explore spatial practices and projects including poetic and political sites, geography, spatial agency, interventions and crossings.
