Science Fiction

COML 2035/ENGL 2035/STS 2131

Science fiction, as Fredric Jameson put it, is "the only kind of literature to reach back and colonize reality." Today, when science and technology have thoroughly penetrated every facet of our lives, it is apparent that science fiction is not merely a literary genre but a whole way of thinking, acting, and being in the modern world. The course explores classic and contemporary science fiction from Frankenstein to the Hunger Games, alongside a rich array of fiction and films from Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
