|Title:||Exploring Alternative Notions of the Heroic in Feminist Science Fiction|
|Authors:||Wulff, E M|
|Keywords:||the heroic and feminist science fiction|
feminist literary theory and philosophy
|Abstract:||In this thesis I discuss feminist science fiction as a literature that explores a variety of alternative social realities. This provides the site to explore alternative notions of the heroic inspired by feminist critiques of the traditional heroic, which come from feminist philosophical, as well as literary critical sources. Alternative notions of the heroic offer a shift in perspective from a specific heroic identity to the events the characters are involved in. The shift to events is made precisely because that is where the temporal is located and dynamic change occurs. Events are where 'becoming' alternatively heroic occurs: in the interaction between a character and the environment.|
