Blog #1

As I've not studied Science Fiction before, even in film, I am interested in Jameson's question of whether culture can be political (critical and subversive) without being co-opted back into the social system, on how we distinguish a Utopian (and why is this term always capitalized) dialectic of Identity and Difference, which seems to run concurrent with a future that is recognizable and yet not ( as in Dr. Bloodmoney and probably countless others). It is interesting to me that this genre may have begun with a woman's text (Mary Shelley's Frankenstein), so that presupposes that there may be a place within the political for women? Not sure, but will read on to find out.
