Essays in this work investigate the relationship between our past and science fiction and fantasy television. Some essays contextualize a particular program or series while others discern ways in which a show depicts history. Thus, through close readings of televised science fiction and fantasy, some authors illuminate such topics as Cold War culture, renegotiations of race and gender, anxiety over the impact of technology, and the legacies of colonialism. Other authors study science fiction and fantasy television to show how historical narratives are constructed and communicated to the larger public.

From the Back Cover:

Essays in this work examine treatments of history in science fiction and fantasy television programs from a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives. Some essays approach science fiction and fantasy television as primary evidence, demonstrating how such programs consciously or unconsciously elucidate persistent concerns and enduring ideals of a past era and place. Other essays study television as secondary evidence, investigating how popular media construct and communicate narratives about past events.
