Etopia, or, after the illuminist imaginaries of modernity

journal contribution
posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by R Younis
The links between utopian and dystopian imaginaries, computer mediated communication technologies and the digital divide in its numerous forms, as well as the links between these things and science fiction, are relatively under-researched. It will be argued here that the tendency to view the internet in terms of utopian or dystopian imaginaries is problematic on a number of levels; it will also be argued that science fiction which is often framed in terms of informatics and computer mediated communication technologies, actually problematises such imaginaries.
