    Hello people,

    My name is Joe and I am a 3rd year student in York. For my final dissertaion I am studying Postmodernity in Red Dwarf and Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. I was wondering if anybody on here had read any scholarly articals or books that they would suggest.

    Thank you for your time

    Joe

    There are a lot of analytical articles buried here on G&T – particularly the ones by Austin, which aim to place Dwarf in a wider context of sci-fi and literature – that you can find if you root around a bit. Unfortunately, since moving the current system we haven’t yet been able to sort out a proper archiving system for easily finding them. We are looking into it, though, and in the meantime I’ll see if I can dig out some links for you.

    (although, thinking about it, I’m struggling to remember if postmodernism has really been covered. Anyone? Andrew, is there anything from the older days that might be helpful?)

    You’d do well to read the Down Time archives on TOS:

    Also, I wrote a bloody good essay on Hitchhiker’s as a social satire when I was at uni a couple of years ago. I’d be happy to send you a copy – just drop me a line on ianiansymes at gmail.com

    Don’t say things like that, Dave! Joe might take it seriously!

    Are you referring to ‘postmodernity’ as in the whole “the authour is dead” definition? Or one of the other definitions?

    Hey guys thank you very much!

    Im lookign at many aspects of postmodernity, the end of the grand narrative is one of my key themes, but as you mentioned the death of the author is also extreamly intresting when looking at the two texts with such varied inputs into there autorship.

    *hangs head* I misread your original post, I thought you were talking about postmodernism in a literary sense; but you mean postmodernity in a cultural/social/philosophical sense, don’t you?
