FS 007 PZ -Utopias and Dystopias*

Institution: Pitzer

Description: Throughout history, writers have created ‘ideal societies’ to question their own cultures and to envision solutions or alternatives to pressing social concerns and problems. Sometimes these visions have galvanized social or political action, sometimes they have been rejected as dangerous. In this course, utopias and dystopias will be our entry into the cultures that produced them. We will explore critiques of economic and political systems, gender relations, sexuality, and modernity in texts from ca. 400 to the 1970s.  [C. Johnson, History, Gender and Feminist Studies, and Religious Studies]
