ENGLISH 29SF: Fight the Future: Researching the Social Justice Work of Speculative Fiction

Imagining the future has been one of the most important ways humans have assessed their present. In this salon-style seminar we'll focus on modern speculative fiction as social critique, especially of regimes of patriarchy, racism, and capitalism. Students will research specific aspects, authors, or sub-genres of speculative fiction, develop a written argument about their subject, and then design and deliver an oral a presentation of their findings at the end of the quarter. Guest lecturers will discuss the work of authors such as Octavia Butler, Samuel R. Delany, Franz Kafka, Philip K. Dick, Ursula LeGuin, and special guest Margaret Atwood will visit the class. Note: will frequently meet with its companion class 9SF.
