9781783169443: Science Fiction, New Space Opera, and Neoliberal Globalism: Nostalgia for Infinity (New Dimensions in Science Fiction)

New Space Opera is a recent subgenre within science fiction that displays a canny engagement with contemporary cultural politics in the age of globalization. This book offers close readings of the evolving canon of the genre to show how its complex political allegories can be seen as a response to the powerful contemporary ideology of neoliberalism and its championing of free-market ideas. A timely look at a branch of science fiction that is deeply engaged with the problems of the present even as it casts its eye to far futures, Science Fiction, New Space Opera, and Neoliberal Globalism offers readers and scholars alike a chance to appreciate a thriving area of popular literature.

About the Author:

Jerome Winter is a lecturer at the University of California, Riverside and has served as editor of speculative fiction for the Los Angeles Review of Books.
 

Review:

“This first book-length study of the ‘Space Opera Renaissance’ in contemporary science-fiction is a superb contribution to the field. Deeply researched, with an impressive command of cutting-edge theories of globalization and cosmopolitanism, Winter’s book offers incisive critical analyses of a wide range of American, British, and Caribbean space operas, focusing on issues of race, gender, class, and neo/postcolonialism. Winter’s readings are unfailingly exciting, conveying both the genre’s galaxy-spanning ‘sense of wonder’ and its potent engagement with crucial issues of political and social moment.”
  (Rob Latham, Editor of The Oxford Handbook of Science Fiction)

“An important intervention in our understanding of science fiction in the context of globalization and popular culture, Science Fiction, New Space Opera, and Neoliberal Globalism offers a provocative framework for thinking through the interpenetration of colonial ideology and popular culture through the lens of transnational postcolonial theory. An essential read for those interested in the history and futures of science fiction.”    
  (Sherryl Vint, University of California Riverside)
