|SCIN 405 - FEMINIST SCIENCE FICTION|
This course will draw on women's studies, science, literature, cultural studies, and (to a lesser extent) history. We will be examining women writers of science fiction, utopias, dystopias, heterotopias and related genres from the Renaissance through the present. There will be a common set of texts and independently developed reading which will be shared with the class in the course of the seminar. We will attempt to answer a variety of questions about women's science fiction--not systematically--but as they emerge from the texts and the discussion. Background critical and theoretical works will help set a framework and prompt direction of inquiry. A 15-20 page seminar project and oral presentation will be required.
