  2. 2. Moira, take me with you! : Utopian Hope and Queer Horizons in Three Versions of The Handmaid's Tale

    Master-uppsats, Linköpings universitet/Tema Genus

    Författare :Hedvig Marx; [2018]
    Nyckelord :The Handmaid’s Tale; Margaret Atwood; Donna Haraway; Karen Barad; José Esteban Muñoz; utopia; dystopia; entanglement; diffraction; disidentification; gender studies; queer theory; intersectionality; narratology;

    Sammanfattning : Using postmodern, feminist and queer notions of utopia/dystopia and narrative theory, this thesis contains an analysis of The Handmaid’s Tale (novel 1985; film 1990; TV series S01 2017) based on theoretical and methodological understandings of utopia/dystopia and narrative as deeply connected with notions of temporality and relationality, and of violence and resistance as the modes of expression of utopia and dystopia in the source texts. The analysis is carried out in an explorative manner (Czarniawska 2004) and utilises the notion of “disidentification” (Butler 1993; Muñoz 1999) and the concepts of “diffraction” (Haraway 1992, 1997; Barad 2007, 2010), and “entanglement” (Barad 2007).
