Description

How does science fiction serve as a metaphor for the present moment? Can stories about zombies in a post-apocalyptic world or aliens living in an ambisexual society give us any insight into social inequalities and systems of oppression? Through texts ranging from Ursula Le Guinn’s Left Hand of Darkness to Octavia Butler’s renderings of the future, we will be analyzing the ways artists and scholars have re-envisioned our lives and the implications of these imaginative leaps as tools for individual and collective resistance.
