Welcome to English 200! This literary forms course is loosely organized around science fiction and fantasy. We will explore a variety of forms—short stories, films, drama, and a novel—using literary techniques such close reading and comparative analysis. Our goal will be to pleasurably and thoughtfully read, discuss, and write about texts. This course will cover works by Ursula Le Guin, N.K. Jemisin, Octavia Butler, Philip K. Dick, Shakespeare, and C.S. Lewis. There will a strong emphasis on collaborative teamwork and student-driven discussion.
