ENG 319 - Studies in Speculative Fiction

3 credits

Prerequisite(s): ENG 220  or Junior standing or permission of instructor
Utilizing an eclectic representation of speculative fiction narratives and approaches, as designated by the instructor, this in-depth survey of varying, influential, and imaginative works from the science fiction, fantasy, and horror subgenres fortifies students' abilities to identify topoi; form intertextual connections; and, using the core values, read, think, and write critically by exploring ways this dynamic, global category both influences and is influenced by the decisions of popular culture, historical/contemporary social concerns, and/or dominant ideology structures. Satisfies the requirement for Group II of the Literary Studies specialization.
