Summary
This study considers the phenomenon of steampunk in America as it relates to neo--imperial anxieties in the context of outsourcing of industry in the late 20th century and the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan in the early 21st century. By mapping the rises and falls in the movement's popularity, as well as focusing on some primary trends and products of steampunk -- including works of literature, iconography/design motifs, DIY fashion, and aspects of performance of steampunk celebrities and at conventions, all of which are criticized through the lens of postcolonial theory -- this paper seeks to understand the phenomenon's importance as a barometer for American imperial nostalgia and as a speculative testing ground for American imperial ambitions
