Past, present, future: steampunk as bricolage


Samida, Stefanie (2018). Past, present, future: steampunk as bricolage. Public History Weekly, 6(37):online.

Abstract

What would a mobile phone look like today if it had been produced in 1880? And what would the world look like if Victorian technology had been used to develop products similar to those we find today? Such alternative historical ideas are not only imagined in Steampunk, but are also implemented. Past, present, and future coincide and build a whole world of their own: between retro and science fiction.
