    Abstract:
    English 3307 equips students for critical encounters with the texts and literary materials that constitute the social, political and scientific context of the twentieth century in North America and Europe. Organized around the theme of the fantastic in speculative fiction, the course delves into enduring tensions in Western cultural traditions, the utopic and nostalgic in social life, science and the rational tradition, and differing forms of social organization. Through a series of essays and formal assignments, students will also improve their understanding of persuasive and correct communication.
