How do we imagine worlds other than our own? What happens when two very different worlds collide? When we tell stories about robots and aliens and environmental disasters and virtual reality video games, are we actually telling stories about ourselves, about our own place and time? English 230, “Rethinking Science Fiction in Canada”, presents an opportunity to explore these questions in an approachable way: through directed study, meeting once a week to discuss ideas and stories, and gaining credits towards your degree in the process!
