Temporal narrative procedures: an ethics of consciousness and agency in science fiction

Abstract : This master’s thesis sets out to study time, consciousness and agency in Slaughterhouse-Five and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. This transmedial comparative analysis uses narrative theory to raise ethical questions, notably concerning the fragility of agency in the genre of science fiction. It focusses on the impact of time-travel and consciousness on agency and shows that these works have used conventions of the genre to question deeply humane aspects of memory and identity.
