Colonizing Bodies: Corporate Power and Biotechnology in Young Adult Science Fiction
Guerra, Stephanie
Children's Literature in Education, v40 n4 p275-295 Dec 2009
The American cultural and political landscape has seen changes on the level of seismic shifts in the past four decades, thanks in part to the two very diverse fields of big business and biotechnology. Linking the two arenas together in the literary landscape is a growing body of young adult science fiction that envisions a future shaped profoundly by both. This paper surveys how the interplay between corporations and biotechnology is represented in this emerging body of work to explore diverse facets of a common theme: the biotechnical subjection of human matter to market force.
