The so-called “Golden Age” of American science fiction coincided with the mythologizing of the American home in the two decades following WW II as an idealized site for the realization of a certain conception of “American values.”  While science fiction might seem an unlikely genre in which to explore and question ideas of domesticity, much science fiction in and since the 1950s has done just that.

What role could philosophy play to the challenges posed by climate change, resource depletion and the diverse political and cultural crises our societies face in the 21st Century? How to identify the toxic effects of the logic of advance capitalism and neoliberal globalization in a cognitive, social and structural level? What kind of narratives, cartographies and figurations account for the fractures and contradictions of our times? How to reinvent subjectivity when trying to make it compatible with mutating universes of value? How can art, cultural becomings and institutional practice be thought in terms of environmental sustainability in the postnatural and posthuman, technologically-mediated era of the Anthropocene?

From E.T.A Hoffmann's Tales of Hoffmann and Philip K.

Today we stand on the threshold to the lab as the government contemplates microchipping all U.S. military personnel and office workers are already implanting themselves for convenience ala M.T. Anderson's Feed.
