Our Faculty Fellows offer experimental, innovative seminars on research topics related to the year's focal theme. These 4000-level courses are open to graduate students and advanced undergraduates. The theme for 2017-2018 is CORRUPTION

Those interested in auditing a course should contact the instructor for permission. The Society for the Humanities does not offer a major or a minor. 

Thinking Through Transparency

Want to dig into popular speculative texts like Octavia Butler's Earthseed Series, Cixin Liu's The Three-Body Problem, and HBO's Game of Thrones? Over the past decade and on a transnational scale, speculative fiction, especially science fiction, fantasy, and weird fiction, has become an important resource for both critiquing and thinking outside of the increasingly totalizing logics of neoliberalism and liberalization. Check out Society Fellow Amie Parry's course to explore how speculative fiction moves toward alternative notions of justice and social organization. 

SHUM 4622/COML 4618 meets Tuesdays at 12:20 during the Spring semester.
