AS2 Storrs Summer 2020 1093 Online Grossman, Leigh 80 No Room Required - Online 9/25 Prerequisite: ENGL 1007 and 1008 or 1010 or 1011 or 2011 This course traces major themes and concepts in science fiction from the Golden Age writers of the 1930s, through the New Wave of the 1960s and 1970s, to the present day. Students will focus on works by Asimov, Card, Heinlein, LeGuin, and other writers?both well-known and forgotten?as well as their impact on the field. The development and impact of particular ideas in speculative fiction will be traced as well, along with the relationship of science fiction literature to other genres and other media, and the state of the SF publishing field today--including the dramatic editorial and demographic shifts of the last few years, and some of the most important current writers.
