Histories of the Future: Studies in Fact, Fantasy and Science Fiction

Histories of the Future: Studies in Fact, Fantasy and Science Fiction By Alan Sandison, Robert Dingley
English | PDF | 2000 | 219 Pages | ISBN : 0333776410 | 11 MB

This collection of interdisciplinary essays examines some of the ways in which writers, artists, film-makers, strategists and political thinkers have imagined the future over the last two centuries. Although a number of contributions discuss 'mainstream' science fiction, the collection's emphasis is not on any single genre, but rather on the ways in which different histories - technological, cultural, military, ideological - generate and inform different modes of speculation about things to come.

Feminist Science Fiction and Feminist Epistemology: Four Modes

Feminist Science Fiction and Feminist Epistemology: Four Modes by Ritch Calvin
English | 2016 | ISBN: 3319324691 | 304 Pages | PDF | 4.3 MB

This book argues that feminist science fiction shares the same concerns as feminist epistemology - challenges to the sex of the knower, the valuation of the abstract over the concrete, the dismissal of the physical, the focus on rationality and reason, the devaluation of embodied knowledge, and the containment of (some) bodies.

Terraforming: Ecopolitical Transformations and Environmentalism in Science Fiction (Liverpool Science Fiction Texts and Studies

Terraforming: Ecopolitical Transformations and Environmentalism in Science Fiction (Liverpool Science Fiction Texts and Studies LUP) by Chris Pak
English | July 1, 2016 | ISBN: 1781382840 | 263 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

This book explores the emergence and development of terraforming in science fiction from H.G. Wells's The War of the Worlds (1898) to James Cameron's blockbuster Avatar (2009). Terraforming is the process of making other worlds habitable for human life. Its counterpart on Earth - geoengineering - has begun to receive serious consideration as a way to address the effects of climate change. This book asks how science fiction has imagined the ways we shape both our world and other planets and how stories of terraforming reflect on science, society and environmentalism.
