Taught By: Ricardo Montez
Section: A

CRN: 14153

Credits: 3

The development of science fiction as a literary genre is closely connected to the history of colonialism and anthropological projects documenting contact with so-called primitive cultures. We examine literary and filmic narratives involving other worlds, bodies, and technologies within this historical legacy. In particular, we discuss how science fiction writers explore systems of oppression while imagining new possibilities for political transformation.
