S/F: Science Fiction and Fantasy

The module examines the appeal of s/f as a serious fictional engagement with our consensual sense of reality. It addresses fantasy, speculative fiction, and science fiction as forms of narrative engaged in "world-building" and "word-shaping," studying such fictional constructs as forms of sociological and anthropological knowledge. It also examines the relation between the "strange" and the "real" in terms of the shared and the antithetical elements that relate s/f to realism.
