Course Description:

Science fiction has long played an important role in exploring social and political phenomenon. From literature to TV and film, science fiction has been a powerful vessel for social commentary. Rod Serling's "The Twilight Zone" is a prime example of this use of futuristic settings to explore current human issues. Using select episodes of "The Twilight Zone" as case studies, this three-part series will examine how the science of science fiction is really anthropology—the study of humans and the human condition. We'll watch episodes and discuss the underlying perspectives on politics, philosophy, and culture.
