Ecopolitical Transformations and Environmentalism in Science Fiction

Chris Pak

Liverpool University Press

Liverpool Science Fiction Texts and Studies LUP

  • This is the first monograph to examine terraforming, geoengineering, the Gaia hypothesis and climate change in science fiction literature and film.
  • This book synthesises environmental philosophy, literary criticism, science fiction scholarship and critical theory in a new way to investigate how science fiction imagines humankind's transformation of the environment.
  • Unlike other related monographs on sf and environmental issues, this book situates acclaimed works of sf against a broad history of the terraforming theme, allowing it to track developments in the way landscaping is conceived over the course of the tradition.
