2019 (English)In: Broken Mirrors: Representations of Apocalypses and Dystopias in Popular Culture / [ed] Joe Trotta, Zlatan Filipovic & Houman Sadri, New York: Routledge, 2019, 1, p. 33-45Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In Hopeful Dystopias? Figures of Hope in the Brazilian ScienceFiction Series 3%, Michael Godhe asks if there is hope in dystopia. If utopias generate figures of hope, what could we possibly say about dystopias? And is there anything especially relevant in post 9–11 dystopias? Do they provide us with figures of despair? On the contrary, Godhe claims that dystopias as much as utopia generate figures of hope – although hope and despair could be hard to disentangle (Thaler, 2019,p. 2). In exploring these issues, Godhe quotes Tom Moylan, who recently wrote that our contemporary situation is “not yet the worst of times, but things are worse every day” and often described across media platforms as dystopian, producing “a resigned anti-utopian pessimism rather than provoking the prophetic awakening of which dystopian narrative iscapable” (Moylan, 2018).
