Thesis Outline

My thesis explores post-9/11 fictional representations of cults (e.g. novels, film, television, videogames) within contemporary American literature. It focuses on the apocalyptic and millennarian ideologies of such movements and engages with the rise of apocalyptic interest in contemporary American society. It discusses how such fictional representations critically engage with regimes of power: both addressing contemporary issues such as gendered and racialised inequalities, and emphasising how such fictional representations can be seen to destabilise such power structures.
