ENGLISH 121D: ┬┐Hard┬┐ Science Fiction

What makes hard science fiction ¿hard¿? What's the science? What's the fiction? And why do we care about the difference? nIn this course, we will investigate different traditions of hard science fiction, trace the interactions between ¿real¿ science and science fiction, and consider the scientific education and outreach potential of hard science fiction. We will read, watch, and play hard science fiction that draws on a number of domains: physics, data science, linguistics, biology, politics, and others. Course texts will include works by Ted Chiang & Carl Sagan, episodes of Star Trek, and fan reviews & commentary. We will conclude the course by thinking about the relationship between science fiction, academia, and literary prestige¿asking questions about why, how, and to whom this genre matters.
