Composed of iconic Canadian novelist Margaret Atwood and environmental activist Leah Kostamo, the panel will explore the rich, complex portrayal of religion in the Canadian imaginary as a powerful, yet ambiguous force which has the potential to renew and to shatter: bringing liberation and oppression, hope and fear. In a career spanning forty years, Atwood’s seminal work has explored the past, present, and dys/utopian future of religion in Canada: imagining religion as everything from the justificatory ideology in the terrifying patriarchy of A Handmaid’s Tale to the outmanned but idealistic eco-liberatory group, God’s Gardeners, in her Flood Trilogy. The presence of Christian environmentalist Leah Kostamo broadens the discussion from the simply the speculative by providing a unique example of how life can imitate art. $18 general public, $12 students.
