COLT 62.03 Zombies, Cyborgs, and Clones in Dystopian Fiction and Film

From the zombie apocalypse to fears of killer robots and technology run amok, current popular culture is fascinated by end-of-the-world nightmare scenarios. Classic dystopian novels like Orwell’s 1984 and Lewis’s It Can’t Happen Here have recently topped bestseller lists, while shows like The Walking Dead dominate the television ratings. Why are we obsessed with apocalyptic and dystopian scenarios?  How might this obsession be related to politics, technology, and the media we both use and consume?



Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:INT or LIT

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
