Description

We will mainly be viewing and discussing Utopian and anti-Utopian movies. Depending on the intended majors of those enrolled, we may use other kinds of visual material as well, from architecture, city planning, world's fairs, etc. We will not be dealing with literary Utopias or Dystopias, but some theoretical and sociological background reading will be recommended.

This 2-unit course may not be counted as one of the twelve courses required to complete the English major.
