2. Components of Dieselpunk

The genre of Dieselpunk consists of three components: Diesel Era/ Decodence, Contemporary in Origin, and the importance of Punk. When taken together, these three components form the basis of the Dieselpunk genre.

Dieselpunk by its nature involves a dialectical tension between the diesel- prefix and the –punk suffix. The diesel- prefix provides a set of parameters and the element of Modernity while the –punk suffix infuses it with a postmodern nature of the individual narrative resulting in a subclass of genre-punk that is highly varied in its different contemporary manifestations.

See the following pages for expansion on the various components.
