Agnethe Brounbjerg Bennedsgaard is a PhD student in comparative literature at Aarhus University. Her project investigates how a wave of Latin American and East Asian genre-hybrid speculative fiction uses uncomfortable, negative sensations to connect abstract, planetary matters to intimate, bodily everyday experiences and hereby creates a more complex understanding of the often-overlooked consequences of the climate crisis.
