Fantasy and Science Fiction

Welcome to the outer realms of the human imagination! I am still deciding on the book list, but on this site you'll find a tentative schedule. Feel free to contact me if you have a book to suggest, either for the syllabus or the book club project. The official English Department course description says, “Students will examine works of literary fantasy and science fiction to understand them as expressions of human intellect and imagination; to comprehend their historical and cultural contexts; and to recognize their diverse cultural traditions. Both contemporary and historical works will be studied." See the syllabus for more on course objectives.
