This course examines the resurgence of science fiction television as a popular genre. Further, the course considers the social and cultural rationale behind the science fiction genre. As has been the case since the genre first made its way to television in the 1950’s, science fiction television exudes a powerful influence as a means to critique and comment on a myriad of social issues such as race, war, and environmental change.
The course will provide students with a brief history of science fiction television, and then go on to explore in depth a variety of case studies, including Disney’s Once Upon a Time, The Walking Dead, Supernatural, and several shows chosen by the class.
Students will engage with course concepts and material through short presentations, in –class discussion, and short weekly assignments, in addition to a multi-media research project.
- Prerequisite: COM 107 Mediated Communication
