Speculative Fiction
Academic Noncredit

This course serves as an intensive exploration of the category known as “speculative fiction” – literary works that construct parallel realities to our own, yet whose themes are not necessarily limited to science fiction’s traditional emphasis on futurity and technology. Genres may include fantasy, horror, utopia, dystopia, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction, alternate timelines, and the supernatural or superhuman broadly construed. Topics may include ethics, metaphysics, history, religion, politics, race, gender, and sexuality.

This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.

Online book and material fees may be added up until the first week of class. Students may opt out during the first two weeks of class. For more information, visit the Campus Store Inclusive Access Program's webpage. If you opt out, you will be responsible for obtaining the course materials yourself for the course.
