Dystopia and Utopia in Ethnic Literature

"In a dystopian story, society itself is typically the antagonist; it is society that is actively working against the protagonist's aims and desires. This oppression frequently is enacted by a totalitarian or authoritarian government, resulting in the loss of civil liberties and untenable living conditions, caused by any number of circumstances, such as world overpopulation, laws controlling a person's sexual or reproductive freedom, and living under constant surveillance" (John Joseph Adams, 2011).

Call for Publication: Essays in Virtual Dark Tourism

"Call it a pilgrimage, perhaps." --C.L. Moore, Vintage Season

Dark Tourism studies are expanding as scholars, largely from public history fields, have become interested in the phenomenon of thanatourism: people's fascination with traveling to places that have witnessed death or that recreate sites of calamity, war, and destruction. Ranging from the comical to the profoundly moving, these sites connect people to the past in tangible ways through objects, spaces, exhibits, and dramatic recreation.

The border is a liminal space, made ambiguous by the dualities that it encompasses: it unites and separates, opens up and closes off, includes and excludes. The border exists to define one space in opposition to another, yet often functions as a meeting-point, a place of exchange, of mixing, and of hybridity and cross-fertilization. That porousness, on a large scale, can unleash complex processes of de-territorialization and re-territorialization of perspectives, of identities, of cultures and histories.
