OBJECTIVES
This course will explore utopianism in postwar American literature and culture, particularly in the “turbulent” decades of the 1960s and 1970s. We will focus on several fictional and theoretical works by authors such as Ursula K. Le Guin, Ernest Callenbach, and Marge Piercy. Towards the end of the semester, more recent interventions into the genre of utopia will be addressed as well.
