Utopias of reinhabitation: Tidings from the age of terminus
thesisposted on 02.11.2017 by ANNE LOUISE MELANO
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Utopia, once the story of hope, now contends with anxiety and grief. This research explores four forms of utopian fiction which reflect on how to inhabit a world living in the shadow of catastrophe. Each imagines “reinhabiting” the earth to heal the rift between the human and other than human world, and to rebuild community within the living systems that surround us.
