ANT 276 - Anthropology & Science Fiction(4 credits)
Anthropology and Science fiction both seek to expand our vision by examining either parts of our world that we know little about (in the case of anthropology) or other worlds that exist in our fantasies or imaginations (in the case of science fiction). This course examines how each proceeds in this attempt through an examination of their interrelationships in subject, vision, and manner. The course involves reading and analysis of text and exegesis in both the "anthropology of science fiction" (i.e., the analysis of science fiction using anthropology) and the "science fiction of anthropology" (i.e., the creation of science fiction involving anthropological subjects and material.
