Description

Class Experience

Each week, students will learn about the classic components that distinguish a dystopia and connect those components to a specific dystopic representation in popular culture. Through discussion and debate students will learn to voice their thoughts, develop arguments, and cite support for their positions within a supportive and respectful community of thinkers. 
As a college professor for the last twenty years with a doctorate in sociology, I have taught, presented, and published in the area of culture. For the last eight years I have  taught a course on popular culture where the concept of a dystopia is discussed, presented, analyzed, and extended via student discourse and written arguments.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Dystopias classically present scenarios of social instability, oppression, manipulation, violence, moral corruption, and social control. While harsh language or extreme behavior may be presented in a specific dystopic work, and while references to such thoughts and acts may be employed during class discussions, specific harsh language and extreme imagery will not be used in class.
