My PhD research traces the emergence of a Posthuman turn within Science Fiction literature by analysing works produced by three prominent authors in the genre over the last three-quarters-of-a-century; Isaac Asimov, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Kim Stanley Robinson. In line with my contention that modern SF is no longer reducible to a distinct megatext, and that contemporary Science Fiction is a (post)human art form spread across a broad range of modalities, my thesis also analyses a number of non- or semi-canonical texts, such as the rebooted BBC television series Doctor Who, the videogame Outer Wilds, the Cube Trilogy, and J.P. Delaney’s The Perfect Wife.
