The Present and the Future: Issues Surrounding the Concepts of "Culture" and the "Nation-State"

Lee Hughes

Scientific fiction has long been analyzed in relation to environmental and biotechnological issues, and urban futurology, but this research attempts to use it to explore globalization and the concept of the nation state. This has been explored primarily through a literature review of current issues relating to global culture and the nation state, and science fiction texts have been used to highlight areas of interest. Aside from opening up the discussion and highlighting the usefulness of using science fiction novels in this context, a key argument is that a restricted world government of a particular form will be required if humans are to remain sufficiently unified in the future, but significant effort must be made to ensure that our unique identities are not harmed at each spatial scale.
