Courses: Imagining Other Worlds-Studies in Speculative Fiction (ENGLH288A01)

Fall 2008

Imagining other future, possible and impossible worlds, speculative fiction expresses personal, social, and political fantasies, anxieties, circulating especially in relation to emerging technologies in various periods and social locations. This class will focus on three intertwined areas: future visions, time travel and narrativity, and issues of embodiment: gender, race, age, sexuality, and species in relation to technology.
