Course Type:UCOR 1100 Academic Writing Seminar
Why are we so fascinated by dystopias? Is utopia a pipe dream? Dangerous? Necessary? Something else entirely? From Thomas More to the Seattle World's Fair, from universal design to Black Mirror and beyond, we will use the frame of topias to explore the rhetorical landscape of the past and future. Students will read, write, and conduct research related to their own -topian interests throughout the course.
