9780877457039: Genre Fission: A New Discourse Practice for Culture Studies

What do Amsterdam prostitutes, NASA astronauts, cross-dressing texts, and Star Trek  characters have in common?  In Genre Fission, Marleen Barr wittily and eccentrically revitalizes cultural and literary theory by examining the points where such vastly different categories meet, converge, and reemerge as something new.

About the Author:

Marleen Barr teaches science and technology studies at Michigan State University. She is a winner of the Science Fiction Research Association Pilgrim Award for lifetime achievement in science fiction criticism. Barr is the author of Feminist Fabulation: Space/Postmodern Fiction (Iowa, 1992), Lost in Space: Probing Feminist Science Fiction and Beyond, and Alien to Femininity: Speculative Fiction and Feminist Theory.

Review:

"For several years we have been accustomed to the idea that one of the features of our current cultural moment is the tendency of different genres to slip about and seep into one another.   But--until now--nobody has progressed from just noticing this phenomenon to analyzing it rigorously and in detail.  Marleen Barr's latest breakthrough book invents nothing less than a new theory of reading, one appropriate to an era in which genres won't stay still.  Tackling prose fiction, theory, film, television, painting, and much else--and written in a lively, engaging, deliberately irreverent style--Genre Fission is an indispensable contribution to modern cultural studies." --Carl Freedman, author of Critical Theory and Science Fiction
