Chapter
Part of the Studies in Global Science Fiction book series (SGSF)

Abstract

This chapter defines the book’s key themes and terms and outlines its structure. It argues that as science fiction (sf) as a genre has significantly changed throughout history, the definition of the Other in Italian history has also changed, produced from and alongside these fictional representations. This chapter also maintains that science fiction’s minor role in the Italian literary canon made it possible for the genre to focus on forgotten or marginalized historical events, such as colonialism. The chronological structure of the book will then be discussed, and the science-fiction works analyzed within a broader social, political, and literary context.
