During my postgraduate degree I took a great seminar called 'Writing the Disaster', taught by Professor David Pascoe, that investigated various forms of disaster literature over the 20th Century (from Wells to Vonnegut to Ballard).  I presented during the 'Memories of the Future' seminar, which covered Resnais' Hiroshima, mon amour and Marker's La Jetée.  I found these notes that I put together when I was cleaning, and for lack of a better thing to do with them, I scanned them here for anyone who might find this loose collection of quotes and links to be useful.  (Three pages)
