  • Introduction: Museums in Science Fiction, Science Fiction in Museums

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When we think of museums and science fiction (sf), we might first think of museums in science fiction. H. G. Wells’s Palace of Green Porcelain (from The Time Machine, 1895), is perhaps the most famous example, but it certainly is not the last. Becky Chambers’s recent The Galaxy, and the Ground Within (2021) shows that museums continue to be useful tools for sf writers. In the above-quoted exchange, Chambers is perhaps reflecting on her wider project of exploring human ideas without human subjects—nearly the entire cast of this novel is alien—and though her use of the museum is very different from Wells’s (which is the subject of Jordan Kistler’s article in this issue), the museum turns out to be just as useful for ...

  • I Cannot Tell You All the Story: Narrative, Historical Knowledge, and the
           Museum in H. G. Wells’s The Time Machine

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Amongst the climactic events of H. G. Wells’s The Time Machine—the visit to the Morlocks’ underground lair, the death of Weena, and the final struggle for possession of the time machine—the Time Traveller visits a museum. The episode is odd, as it does little more than provide the Time Traveller with a new box of matches. Yet, the text is structured to suggest that the episode will provide important information, and the museum’s layout and collection only reinforce that expectation. It is the Palace’s status as a universal survey museum that marks its importance to the text as a whole. Universal survey museums, the dominant form of museum after the mid nineteenth century, included all branches of knowledge (a ... Read More

  • Erotic Surgery: J. G. Ballard’s Crash, Octavia Butler’s
           “Bloodchild,” and the Visual Legacy of the Medical Museum

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It is probably safe to say that to most people, “erotic” and “surgery” are two words that should never go together. Maybe, for some, what immediately comes to mind is a nightmarish image of the sexually charged body horror of film director David Cronenberg or predatory practices that appear in dystopic fictions. J. G. Ballard’s novel Crash and Octavia Butler’s short story “Bloodchild” are two such titles canonized in science fiction, both of which leverage impromptu surgical settings as a form of foreplay in their narratives. While they were written in the latter half of the twentieth century (1973 and 1995, respectively), the medical motifs that are meant to drive the eroticism of these narratives are actually ...

  • Science Fiction Worldbuilding in Museum Displays of Extinct Life

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This is an essay about the narrative power of museums, the ways they incorporate the techniques of fiction into (or help us make fiction out of) the things they tell us.1 It is widely recognized that museums tell stories, but it is less usual to find literary critics talking about what kinds of stories they tell and what their formal mechanisms are.2 In seeking to enlighten us about the world, we suggest, museums sometimes deploy techniques similar to the “worldbuilding” tools of science fiction (sf) and fantasy authors, and the following pages present three case studies in which such worldbuilding can be clearly identified. Underlying our argument is the idea that when museums seek to describe the actual ... Read More

  • Science Fiction at the Natural History Museum

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The natural history museum is a deadly serious place, an unnatural convention of organic remains, displays “reuniting” lineages across evolutionary space and geological time. Entire dynasties of ways of being a living thing are summarily docketed with facts about teeth, maximum sizes, and reproductive systems. The natural history museum reassures us that human order has been brought to the wild chaos of the rest of nature, as demonstrated by the vignette slices that have been deposited for your viewing pleasure. Taxidermy birds paddle water made of glass; meticulously prepared fossil specimens show us echoes of life emerging from stone; and dissected molluscs float in preserving fluid, displaying their exposed ...

  • I Just Don’t Think about It: Engaging Students with Critical Heritage
           Discourse through Science Fiction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Alfonso Cuarón’s 2006 film Children of Men, an adaptation2 of P. D. James’s 1992 novel The Children of Men,3 offers a view of the future museum. In a dystopia where society is pushed to the edge of collapse, a man tries to help a pregnant asylum seeker escape those who would exploit her child for political gain. In one scene, protagonist Theo (Clive Owen) visits his cousin Nigel (Danny Huston), who runs the “Ark of the Arts.” He drives his car through mass protests into the Tate Modern’s now empty Turbine Hall. They enjoy a luxurious meal in a penthouse space. Theo finally asks, “A hundred years from now there won’t be one sad fuck to look at any of this. What keeps you going'” Nigel answers, “You know what it is ... Read More

  • Coda on Curation: Thoughts on Science Fiction and Museums

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I could be a curator. I’d be great at curating. I’d be the Great Curator. I could retire and do that. I could retire and be the curator of this place.Museums are more than buildings and artefacts; they are processes: selection, preservation, conservation, research, display, interpretation, reinterpretation, and even discarding and destruction. An encounter in a museum, when a visitor stands in front of a display case filled with objects or a wall filled with art, is always an encounter with curation.Curators are “people who take care, preserve, and classify objects worth caring for”; this definition is tied to the Latin etymological root of curator in curare, meaning “to take care of.”2 While the concept of ...

  • The Digitized Museum and the Troubling Reliance on Technology to Manage
           Knowledge in E. M. Forster’s The Machine Stops

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In his latest work, The Nineties (2022), cultural critic Chuck Klosterman attempts to pinpoint why the last decade of the twentieth century seems so culturally defined compared to the undefined mass of the twenty-first century.1 The lack of defined decades in the twenty-first century is proposed as a symptom of digital amnesia due to the increased reliance on technology to remember for us.2 Klosterman writes that information in the twenty-first century revolves around “the aid of a mechanism that remember[s] everything automatically”3 compared to any decade of the twentieth century, positing that “what makes the 1990s unique is the massive amount of information to potentially misremember, amplified by the ...
