"Science fiction, because of its links to science and technology, is the consummate literary vehicle for examining the perception and cultural impact of the modernization process in Brazil. Because of the centrality of the role played by the military dictatorship (1964-85) in imposing industrialization and economic development policies on Brazil, this book examines the genre in the periods before, during, and after the dictatorship, encompassing the years 1960-2000. The analysis shows that a reading of Brazilian science fiction based on its use of paradigms of Anglo-American science fiction and myths of Brazilian nationhood provides a unique look into Brazil's modern metamorphosis as it finds itself on the periphery of the globalized world." "The three periods studied here correspond roughly to the 1960s, the '70s, and he '80s to the present. The earliest group of authors produces mostly antitechnological, apolitical science fiction, as a way of affirming myths of Brazilian identity. Here, the deconstruction of myths of the feminine and of racial democracy provides the basis for the analysis of Brazil's notion of national identity. In the seventies, a second group of authors uses science fiction to protest the military regime, creating dystopian worlds in which the myths of Brazilian culture serve as touchstones to criticize various ills associated with urbanization, industrialization, and repression. In the analysis of these texts, the insights of ecofeminism are employed to demystify the conflation of the land with women found in the nostalgic construction of Brazilian identity characteristic of this period. The third group, emerging in the mideighties after the dictatorship, offers a more complex, postmodern view of Brazilian society, its continuing social problems, and the phenomenon of globalization. Reading these texts as allegories of modernization enriches the understanding of both the genre of science fiction and the experience of modernity itself."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

A dissertação delineia as trajetórias de produção e crítica da literatura de ficçãocientífica no Brasil, de meados do século XIX até hoje. O objetivo é investigar o processode marginalização do gênero na perspectiva da constituição dos cânones da literaturabrasileira, divididos, de uma maneira genérica, em duas vertentes: a erudita, que legitimaa intelectualidade nacional relacionando-a à alta cultura européia; e a popular, mediadapela mesma elite intelectual, na qual os mitos da brasilidade são afirmadosideologicamente. A análise dos discursos críticos sobre a ficção científica revela estadualidade, além de alguns dos valores, pressupostos e práticas discursivas que regulam oprocesso de estabelecimento do cânone no Brasil. A problematização destes parâmetros éuma das chaves para compreender a não-assimilação do gênero pelo cânone oficial queconstrói politicamente a idéia de Literatura Brasileira.

Fictional narratives produced in Latin America often borrow tropes from contemporary science fiction to examine the shifts in the nature of power in neoliberal society. King examines how this leads towards a market-governed control society and also explores new models of agency beyond that of the individual.

The Liverpool Companion to World Science Fiction Film offers critical insights into SF far beyond the more common Anglo-American narratives. Contributors take either a national or transnational approach, and stretch the geographic and conceptual boundaries of science fiction cinema. Recurrent themes include genre discussions, engagement with Hollywood, and the international subgenre of science fiction parody. Chapters contain a variety of perspectives and styles: from gender and race studies, to the eco-critical, and the post-colonial; from the avant-garde, to socialist realism, and the Hammer film. Edited by Sonja Fritzsche, the collection contains fourteen chapters written by specialists from around the world. Film traditions represented include Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cameroon, China, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States plus a chapter on digital shorts. From the dinosaur myth that became Godzilla to Brazilian science fiction comedy, from China's Death Ray to Kenya's Pumzi, this book will broaden the horizons of scholars and students of Science Fiction.
