In the s, Miguel Collazo was one of a handful of dreamers who set out to write mind-expanding science fiction within the geographic and ideological confines of post-Revolution Cuba.
Science fiction sometimes shortened to sci-fi or SF is a genre of speculative fiction that typically deals with imaginative and futuristic concepts such as advanced science and technology , space exploration , time travel , parallel universes , and extraterrestrial life. It has been called the " literature of ideas ", and often explores the potential consequences of scientific, social, and technological innovations. Science fiction, whose roots go back to ancient times , is related to fantasy , horror , and superhero fiction, and contains many subgenres. Its exact definition has long been disputed among authors , critics , scholars , and readers. Science fiction literature , film , television , and other media have become popular and influential over much of the world.
Chronology of Latin American Science Fiction, Many readers and critics possessing only a superficial acquaintance with Latin American science fiction erroneously assume the works to be mere variations of the more prestigious genres, magical realism and the literary fantastic. Historically, in the absence of sustained attention from the literary establishment, Latin American writers have been free to disregard the more stringent genre boundaries that shaped early sf production in the US. Therefore, this and any chronology of Latin American sf will of necessity include texts not always or exclusively identifiable as science fiction, especially to readers accustomed to works from parts of the world with more established sf traditions and stronger ties to the critical and market sectors. The objective of this Chronology is to continue to inventory this type of cultural production in Latin America and to present it here in English for the first time. An earlier version was published in November in Chasqui , a journal devoted to Latin American literary criticism.
My interests include literature, film, graphic fiction and visual arts from Latin America, particularly Argentina, Chile, and Brazil. Many of my recent projects are related to the broader theme of the relationship between science and the arts, but I have also worked on questions of memory, modernity, capitalism, posthumanism, new materialism, decoloniality and environmental thought in Latin America. The monographs and edited volumes I have published are listed below, and many of them are available on open access via the links given. Crisis and Capitalism in Contemporary Argentine Cinema explores the significant boom in Argentine filmmaking from the mids onwards, with a particular emphasis on how these productions have registered Argentina's experience of capitalism, neo-liberalism, and economic crisis. In different ways, the films selected for discussion testify to the social consequences of growing unemployment, rising crime, marginalization, and the expansion of the informal economy. The book focuses particularly on films associated with New Argentine Cinema, but it also discusses highly experimental films and genre movies borrowing from the conventions of crime thrillers, Westerns, and film noir.

Early science fiction has often been associated almost exclusively with Northern industrialized nations. In this groundbreaking exploration of the science fiction written in Latin America prior to , Rachel Haywood Ferreira argues that science fiction has always been a global genre. She traces how and why the genre quickly reached Latin America and analyzes how writers in Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico adapted science fiction to reflect their own realities. Among the texts discussed are one of the first defenses of Darwinism in Latin America, a tale of a time-traveling history book, and a Latin American Frankenstein.
