Survey of Dystopian Novels - Spring 2019

This course will consider the dystopian genre by studying novels such as Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, 1984 by George Orwell, and The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. We will explore the common features of dystopia as speculative fiction and discuss why it became a vehicle for social commentary and the expression of social and political anxieties in the 20th Century.
