[Dystopian Domination] Day 6: Jesse Karp Guest Post + Giveaway!

It's the sixth day of Dystopian Domination and the event is in full swing! Today, we have an Elevensies debut author on our blog, Jeff Hirsch, and talks about the rise of the dystopian genre.

Join me in welcoming Jesse on Amaterasu Reads!


Was Star Trek the last optimistic view of the future that really captured the popular imagination? Certainly, it’s the only one that’s really still with us. I think that says something integral about our shift into the darker, more disturbing world of dystopian fiction.

Once upon a time, we as a culture tended to see the future as a great expansion out into space, growing ever upwards into a limitless expanse of stars that was a reflection of our potential. Our science and technology, our popular imagination was very much directed to the pursuit of space travel. That future we once saw for ourselves has, in fact, played out in almost exactly the opposite direction. Instead of expanding outwards, we have moved inwards, exploring the innerspace of computers and the Internet. We have gone from seeing what technology can do for us as an entire species (help us grow and survive) to what technology can do for us individually (propagate our personalities and opinions – much as I’m doing right now).

Published March 21, 2011 by Harcourt
It didn’t help that, as this technology was evolving, our faith in our leadership, and democracy itself, took a nosedive (thanks, Richard Nixon and Vietnam). As our view of the present became darker, how could our view of the future go a different way? I’m speaking from a very United States-centric point of view, but that’s where most of our dystopian fiction is coming from, after all. Among its many exports, the U.S. has always excelled most at propagating our own culture.

At any rate, this more internal view of the future lends itself to narratives that tend to focus on the cracks and seams in our society. Given that those cracks and seams are so much more apparent to us now then they ever have been before (thanks, ubiquitous media coverage), it becomes all the easier to imagine that we might be headed into trouble. That’s what I’ve been mulling over and that’s what I wrote about in Those That Wake.

On the bright side, something else you might have noticed about all this dystopian fiction is that the characters at the centers of the stories don’t tend to be bureaucrats or dictators or torturers. The protagonists are teens fighting these soul-crushing systems, looking for a way out of the seams and cracks. This points to something very promising in us that has always come out in our stories: no matter how bad things get, not matter how dark things look, we are always capable of using our hope to fight back.

Jesse Karp is the author of the YA novel Those That Wake and its forthcoming sequel. He is a school librarian at LREI in New York City, where he lives with his wife and two daughters.

  1. Great post. I'm not really old enough to compare what people thought of the future in the past to what we think today (I *think* that sentence makes sense), but nowadays we do seem to have a pretty bleak outlook. There is a lot of negative feeling but I guess that's better than being completely oblivious. Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. El Shaarawy out for 10 weeks after surgery

    Agen Bola terpercaya reported,Milan have confirmed Stephan El Shaarawy faces up to 10 weeks out after undergoing surgery on his right foot.
    The 21-year-old has endured a tough season so far due to numerous injury problems and has been restricted to just four Serie A appearances.
    A fractured right metatarsal had kept him out of action for two months already and after the issue failed to heal properly, Milan opted to send the Italy international to have surgery.
    Milan, like El Shaarawy, are having a season to forget as they sit in 13th place with only four wins from 17 Serie A matches and they look set to be without the attacker until mid-March.
    The injury also puts the player’s FIFA World Cup participation in jeopardy should he not return on schedule, although coach Cesare Prandelli has previously revealed physical tests in April will determine who is in reported by Indo Eleven.
    He said: “The most important thing will be in April when I’ll call 33-35 players in for physical tests. From that group we’ll pick the final 23 for Brazil, because this World Cup is going to take up a lot of energy.


  24. Frustrated Allardyce bemoans defensive lapses

    Agen Bola terpercaya reported,Sam Allardyce expressed frustration after seeing his West Ham side twice throw away winning positions in Saturday’s 3-3 draw with West Brom.
    Allardyce’s men went ahead inside the first four minutes at Upton Park thanks a Joe Cole strike, only for West Brom striker Nicolas Anelka to turn things around with a first-half double.
    West Ham recovered excellently in the second half and appeared to be on their way to victory as goals from Modibo Maiga and Kevin Nolan put them back in front.
    However, the hosts could not hang on, with Saido Berahino’s 69th minute strike ensuring a point for Keith Downing’s men, leaving Allardyce – who saw defender James Tomkins limp off after less than 10 minutes – to bemoan West Ham’s failure to maintain a lead.
    “The game was very frustrating,” Allardyce told BBC Sport. “There is a reason why that happened, none of our centre-backs are reported by Indo Eleven
    “Losing James Tomkins was a big blow for us. Our coping mechanism was playing four full-backs across the back four. That has cost us three points.


  25. Injured Rooney tipped to face Tottenham

    Agen Bola terpercaya reported,Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is expected to recover from a groin strain in time to face Tottenham on New Year’s Day.
    Rooney missed Saturday’s trip to Norwich City after suffering a recurrence of the groin problem that saw him sit out the League Cup quarter-final against Stoke City earlier this month.
    But the Premier League champions are confident that the 28-year-old will be in contention to make an immediate return when Tottenham head north to Old Trafford on Wednesday.
    “Wayne Rooney didn’t travel to Norwich due to the recurrence of a groin strain. He should be available for #mufc vs @SpursOfficial on 1 Jan,” confirmed United via the club’s official Twitter account.
    Rooney, on target in the 3-2 win at Hull City on Boxing Day, is United’s top scorer this season with 11 goals in all reported by Indo Eleven.
    Manager David Moyes will be desperate to have Rooney at his disposal against Tottenham as he is already without the services of striker Robin van Persie, who is expected to return next month from a thigh problem.


  26. Milan deny Balotelli sale rumours

    Agen Bola terpercaya reported,Milan have refuted rumours striker Mario Balotelli is for sale, amid claims president Silvio Berlusconi had made him available for transfer.
    Reports in the Italian media had suggested the former Manchester City and Inter forward would be allowed to depart San Siro, with Berlusconi allegedly planning to offload the 23-year-old during the January transfer window.
    Balotelli has previously been linked with a move back to England, with Chelsea thought to be among his suitors.
    But the Serie A club have strongly denied claims he will be sold and insist there are no plans to allow Balotelli to leave.
    A statement on the club’s official website read: “AC Milan denies absolutely and vehemently the statements that have been attributed to the president of Milan about a possible placement of Mario Balotelli on the market.”as reported by Indo Eleven.
    The Italy international joined Milan in last January’s transfer window, bringing an end to a three-year stay at the Etihad Stadium.


  27. Ancelotti praises Ronaldo for Real Madrid’s victory

    Agen Bola terpercaya reported, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says that Cristiano Ronaldo destroyed Osasuna’s dream to win the match in Real Madrid's 2-0 win on Wednesday.
    As starting the game Osasuna were trying to put more pressure for finding the victory but after Cristiano's goal it was very difficult for them.
    Ancelotti is very happy with his side's control of the game and spoke out in defence of Coentrao for what he believes was a harsh dismissal.
    "They started as we expected, with intensity and pressing high up, but after Cristiano's goal it was very difficult for them," the manager reported by Agen Judi terpercaya

    "We were always in control of the match and the team managed to score early on. Defensively we were solid and, from that foundation, we were able to score twice."

    He added, "Coentrao was unlucky with the expulsion, he played very good. He was focused and before the expulsion made no mistakes."


  28. Bayern Munich look for Mandzukic’s contract extension

    Agen Bola terpercaya reported, Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed that his side want a contract extension for Mario Mandzukic.

    "We will keep Mandzukic and will try to extend his contract. I don't have the feeling that he'd be averse to that," Mario Mandzukic said.
    "Team-mate Arjen Robben will see his contract expire next year, although Rummenigge is also confident in extending the Netherlands international's stay in Bavaria." as reported by Agen Judi terpercaya
    "I'm always in contact with him and his father and soon we will meet in order to be more specific. We are very happy, and he feels comfortable. I have a good feeling," he added.

    Presiden Valencia Juan Antonio Pizzi menyebut Aspas sebagai pemain yang akan meningkat permainanya di paruh musim kedua. Untuk itu, pihaknya masih menjadikan sang striker sebagai target utama peminjaman.

    "Ibrahimovic? It's impossible. He's happy in Paris. I know because we're in contact, we're friends," Mourinho said.
    "With their financial potential, I don't think Paris will ever open the door for him to leave. Cavani is a very good player. But Paris paid a lot of money for him and he has an amazing contract."
    He added, "Maybe it's not impossible like Zlatan, because I think that Zlatan is more important to the structure of the club. But I think that it's also difficult."

  42. FIFA sanctioned to three players

    And Conte praised the 20-year-old and hopes that Pogba can become a great champion, as reported by Agen Judi terpercaya

    Berita terbaru dan terkini Bola Soccer dari Agen Bola Indo11 - AC Milan perlahan namun pasti mampu memperbaiki perolehan poin mereka dan mendekati papan atas klasemen. Tapi yang terpenting untuk Clarence Seedorf saat ini adalah Rossoneri fokus pada peningkatan performa, bukan klasemen.

    Agen Bola Indo11 Terpercaya - Sempat terseok-seok di awal musim dengan terjerembab di papan bawah dan berujung pemecatan Massimiliano Allegri, AC Milan kemudian membaik di tangan Seedorf yang diangkat sebagai pelatih baru.
