For this course, our conversations are revolving around the question of how particular literary forms and genres mediate our understandings of (even as they are themselves shaped by) modernity, empire, politics, culture, and history.


Order Details

1)Use the book "the stories of Ibis " written by Yamamoto Hiroshi as a focal point, produce a solid original analysis of selected critical issues arising from how the text in question illuminates and is informed by questions of the politics of science-fictionality, don’t summarize the paper but do a really original analysis, you need to create a really strong and clear thesis and go from there,
Below is some description of this course, I find it will help you on finding strong thesis and related to the course, so please pay attention to read the description before you start to write.

(For this course, our conversations are revolving around the question of how particular literary forms and genres mediate our understandings of (even as they are themselves shaped by) modernity, empire, politics, culture, and history. Through the examination of these fictions—attentive not only to the stories they tell and the images and tropes they deploy, but also to modes of reading and spectatorship alongside the structuring of desires, affects, and horizons of expectation that their narrative forms engender—we will track the transformations in the historical and historiographic unconscious of literary narration in order to work through the constitution and breakdown of the fiction of nationality itself.
Science fiction makes for an effective entry point for the analysis of these issues for two reasons. First, its techniques of world-building and its lineage with the tradition of the narrative utopia make it an effective site for the exploration of not only the origins of nation-state form, but also for articulating the techniques and practices for imagining new forms of spatial histories. Second, the inter-textually circulated motifs, images, and narratives of science fiction form a coherent and historically situated discourse indebted to the language and logic of colonialism; as such, it is not only a genre that exceeds the boundaries of a single nation, but also one that poses the very question of transnationality. With this in mind, our course will track the interactions between the emergence and subsequent development of the genre of science fiction in Japan and the histories of nationalisms, utopianisms, and imperialisms.)

Topics such as technologies if body/societies of control, globalization, utopia and what defines it and whether its possible to achieve in current states of society or not, Bio-politics and its influence and what is it becoming in the future and how should we deal with it are something professor would like to see, but definitely go beyond and find your own interesting point of view after reading the novel, I wrote 4 sources, because although this novel is your focal point, you need to find ideas from other sources as well (things like historical facts that you may want to combine with, definition of some terms that you are gonna discuss about, etc)
I know theres alot to think about in order to finish this order, but i do think its a fun novel to read and its gonna be an interesting paper to write, hope you will have fun with it and please let me know if theres any questions!
