This thesis examines an array of Dystopian literature of the 21st century to analyse how speculative fiction uses technology as a method of tyranny. This thesis argues that technology within dystopias always serve the political hegemony. Further, this thesis argues that the system of control that is born from technology leaves no room for consciousness or identity.
