Classical Traditions in Science Fiction

Courses Involved

CSTS 238: Classical Traditions in Science Fiction

Timeline

Platform development: Winter and Spring 2015
Piloted in courses: Spring 2015

Goals and Description

Two professors, Benjamin Stevens and Brett Rogers, will teach the same class on Classical Traditions in Science Fiction in two different locations, Bryn Mawr College and the University of Puget Sound. They will use web conferencing to communicate and interact with the other class across the country as well as live twitter discussions. As technical difficulties are inevitable, they will use these opportunities to reflect on the role of technology today in a class blog. This digital humanities course will try to ask whether “a scientific understanding of the world [should] guide our social, political, and moral decision-making.”
