By Kyle Plantz LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Students at a Massachusetts college have just read "The Windup Girl", the tale of a dystopian future Bangkok where climate change has pushed up temperatures and sea levels, and viruses acquired from genetically modified food are killing people. The book, by debut novelist Paolo Bacigalupi, is the product of a new class at Holyoke Community College on "climate fiction" or "cli-fi", a relatively new variant of science fiction. Around the world, from the United States to Britain to India, cli-fi classes are creeping into timetables as academics try to bring a growing international concern into the classroom in a lively way that combines science and emotion. "Cli-fi is capturing what is in the air now, the human impact on the environment, and I think literature is a great tool to raise awareness for this," said Elizabeth Trobaugh who teaches the class at Holyoke and earlier taught a class looking at real-life science in science fiction.

By Patricia Reaney NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Tudor court of England's King Henry VIII, with all its intrigue, greed and betrayal, comes alive on Broadway in "Wolf Hall Parts One & Two," the theatrical adaptation of author Hilary Mantel's award-winning historical novels. The two-part production by the Royal Shakespeare Company, which runs for a total of more than five hours, opened at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York Thursday after sold-out engagements in Stratford-upon-Avon and London's West End. Based on Mantel's books, "Wolf Hall" and "Bring Up the Bodies," which also spawned a six-part BBC mini series showing on PBS television, the performances chronicle the politics and power struggles of Henry VIII. The king breaks with the Catholic Church during his reign in the 1500s so he can leave his wife, Katherine of Aragon, and marry Anne Boleyn, in the hopes of producing a male heir.
