The following five posts are the breakdown of my BA academic dissertationcompleted in May of 2009. I have left it as it was handed in as opposed to translating it into a journalistic piece. For information of any of the references I am more than happy to help but didn’t wish to publish them as it would make plagiarism far easier.
The dissertation is inspired by the link between science fiction and reality under the theme of human reproduction and its many artificial variants. This subject was particularly fascinating and the rate at which science is developing is hard to believe or to keep up with. One element which made this project so enjoyable was forcing myself to read novels I normally wouldn’t and being pleasantly surprised by many of them. I am now a big fan of Michel Houellebecq and the way he writes; poetically yet gritty. Also my admiration of the pure genius and forward thinking of Huxley has increased almost exponentially.
I hope you enjoy reading my dissertation, I would greatly appreciate your comments.
