Science Fiction and Fantasy have permeated our culture. This course will briefly cover the origins of the genre and then give an overview of the current landscape, drawing material from books, graphic novels, games, films and TV. Themes will include “stranger in a strange land” (whether an alien, robot or monster), and the intersection of history and speculative fiction, e.g. epic fantasy, time travel, alternate history and steam punk.
