Focused on science fiction, this course provides an overview of the genre and the key techniques and theories for critical analysis and interpretation. The main question and concern with which we will approach the texts is whether and how feminist writers reconceptualize sovereignty.

For those of you who would like head start on the reading material, we will be discussing Octavia E. Butler´s Dawn, Nalo Hopkinson´s Brown Girl in the Ring, and Victor Lavalle´s The Changeling.
