Excavating the Future

Archaeology and Geopolitics in Contemporary North American Science Fiction Film and Television

Shawn Malley

Liverpool University Press

Liverpool Science Fiction Texts and Studies LUP

  • The first comprehensive study of science fiction's often unacknowledged archaeological imaginary
  • Treats SF film and television as important documents of the 'soft diplomatic' policies underlining post 9/11 world heritage initiatives in the Middle East.
  • Offers new perspectives on an array of extremely popular but also often critically neglected SF texts
  • Contributes an innovative approach to cyborg studies
  • Furnishes an original reading of SF's adaptive response to post-9/11 geopolitics, including the war on terror, the invasion of Iraq, and the battle against ISIS
