TJI1036   Virtual TJ Astrofuturism: Exploring the Universe of Speculative Fiction

Recently, speculative fiction has become the catch-all phrase describing not only established genres such as fantasy, science fiction, and horror, but a new blending of stories that fall within the boundaries of these categories. Students will begin the course by reviewing traditional genre definitions. Students will then build on their understanding by exploring how writers such as Ray Bradbury, Octavia Butler, Ted Chiang, Ursula K. Le Guin, to name a few, play with these genre boundaries. We will explore questions such as: What world of possibilities speculative fiction can provide the reader? How might speculative fiction meet our moment? How might it be fun to mash-up genres, both as readers and writers? By the end of the week, students will have opportunities to write speculative fiction pieces while engaging in discussions about the works read.
