This is a critical reading and writing course focused on exploring indigenous speculative fiction. The course will explore what speculative fiction is, as well as how the indigenous worldview and writer creates a cultural and historical vantage point. Looking at the methods and themes that indigenous writers employ to write about the “future” world, we will analyze short stories through reading reflections and seminars. Students will be writing their own creative speculative fiction that will be peer workshopped and made into a course anthology of student work. A key component to this course will be learning to deliver effective and compelling readings of completed work.
