Galax Arena And The Cultural Issues

- How does cultural difference function among the peb who live in the Galax Arena. Rubinstein’s Galax-Arena (1992) is a science fiction text which shows that a barrier between cultures can be created through a fictitious scientific experiment called Project Genesis Five. Rubinstein creates cultural difference not only between members of the peb, but also between the peb and Vexa; which in turn shows the racial impacts of cross-cultural exchange. The text outlines the impacts of science on cultures, more over how science experiments can affect people; and how people who use science can create difference between and among cultures....   [tags: Gillian Rubinstein]
