The last decade has witnessed a transformation in electronic visual media. Film, television, video games and user- generated- content (UGC) are increasingly commingling. This has facilitated significant changes in the traditional models of production and consumption, leading to new practices and relationships as divergent production communities operate together.

The genre of apocalyptic literature has long been associated with times of crisis and distress. Perhaps one of the most important examples in the Western tradition, the Biblical Book of Revelation, was written as a response to the horrible persecution of early Christians in the Roman Empire. Since that time, authors and film-makers have turned to imaginations of apocalypse, the end of the world, and life after the collapse of contemporary social structures to take on a host of questions and concerns. The prevalence of post-apocalyptic literature and film in recent decades has forced literary and cultural studies scholars to examine this cultural mode in a new way.
