ENG 255 A Science Fiction

This course will explore Science Fiction as a legitimate literature that reflects the great philosophical, psychological, and sociological issues if the 19th through 21st centuries. We are all familiar with the usual clichés of this genre – intergalactic war, robots and computers out of control, weird alien encounters – but at the heart of Sci-Fi lies a “literature of ideas” that attempts to “search for definition of man and his status in the universe.” Through our study of a broad selection of texts and movies, we will expand our critical understanding and appreciation of this evolving literature.
