Apocalypse Fiction and the Literature of Last Men
This project explores continuities between apocalypse fiction and religious and secular philosophies of history, and examines last man fictions – tales of solitary survivors and of the sudden and almost complete annihilation of the human species – as a privileged point of encounter between literature, philosophy and religious thought, as well as between “high” and “popular” culture. I explore the field in a recent journal article (“Naturalizing apocalypse”, 2012) and have started collecting material for a monograph, which traces the historical origins of last man fiction from Romanticism to the Millennium.
