Through an analysis of the thematic configurations of concepts like utopia and dystopia, this course will examine the ways in which science fiction reflects and rejects contemporary reality; how science fiction participates in the conditioning and manipulative processes of contemporary capitalism (ideology); and how science fiction expresses the (repressed) desire for some other world of disalienation and freedom (utopian longing).
