Humains augmentés et dystopies dans une sélection d'épisodes de la série Black Mirror : approche esthétique et narratologique

Abstract : Since 2011, the anthology series Black Mirror (Brooker, Jones, 2011-) has been offering stories linked by a common theme: that of new technologies and the impact they can have on an individual and/or the society in which he or she lives. The aim of this study is to analyse both the dystopian dimension and the notion of human enhancement as represented in the following episodes: The Entire History of You (S01E03), Nosedive (S03E01), San Junipero (S03E04), Men Against Fire (S03E05) et USS Callister (S04E01). This series brings the spectator to a reflection, through fiction, on his or her use of technology and on the actual evolution of the world around them. Thus, the problematic to which we seek to answer is the following: to what extent do Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones manage to propose a satire of our time through these five episodes? We try to answer this question through an aesthetic and narratological approach by studying, on the one hand, the representation of the post-human and, on the other hand, the influence of the classics of dystopia, to finish on reflexivity, i.e. the echo to our reality and to contemporary questionings.
