This talk focuses on another side to apocalyptic fiction – the fate of the human body. The aim will be to explore the intriguing adaptation of the human body in apocalyptic fiction.
As corporeal waste, the human body is deconstructed, manipulated and fragmented in apocalypse fiction. It is transplanted into resourceful matter, made malleable and recycled. Through analysing fiction and film adaptation by twentieth and twenty-first century authors and filmmakers, this talk aims to offer a new perspective on commonplace recycling waste by considering the human body itself as something worth recycling.
