The world has been just about to end, it seems, since human beings first started telling stories. In this class, we’ll study stories of the end of the world from around the world, from the distant past into the very near future. We’ll think about myth, religion, science fiction, linear time, cyclic time, and the very idea of ending itself. There will, of course, be movies to watch as well as books to read.
