Science fiction - one of the most popular literary, cinematic and televisual genres - has received increasing academic attention over the years. For philosophers, critical theorists and others it opens up a space in which the here-and-now can be made strange or remade; where virtual reality and cyborg are no longer gimmicks or predictions, but new spaces and subjects. Lost in Space brings together an international collection of authors to explore the diverse spatialities and geographies of space. A diverse range of themes are examined - from geographical and sociological imaginations to nature, scale, geopolitics, modernity, time, identity, the body, power relations and the representation of space. Drawing on a range of theoretical approaches, the essays explore the writings of a broad selection of science fiction writers and films.
