The Literary Genre III: Science Fiction and Fantasy course introduces students to the specific appeal and techniques of science fiction and fantasy, including hard science fiction, space opera, epic fantasy, speculative fiction, and alternative history. Students in this course will learn about the appeal of escapist fiction and how these speculative genres often shed light on human nature and the human condition in ways that are difficult to accomplish in more realistic genres. The tendency for games and comics to fall under the sci-fi and fantasy realm will also be examined.
