Science Seminar: the Universe and You

Taught by

We are interested in symmetries and changes in the universe, and in human understanding and interaction with nature.  Scientists have discovered new puzzles, which your generation may solve. 

How do we know that dark energy and dark matter are yin and yang?  What about the new gravity waves from merging black holes – could they open up a wormhole for warp speed travel?  Are climate change feedbacks self-healing, catastrophic, or an intentional “Revenge of Gaia”?  Is there a Planet X?  Where do ideas like these come from, and how can we assess their validity?

Imagined Futures: Indigenous Speculative Fiction

Taught by

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.
