Description: While this paper requires the most research, it is also the most open-ended in subject matter: you must compose an original argument about how science fiction transforms history and culture, sometimes in radical ways, and yet through those transformations is always dialoguing with and critiquing—often trenchantly—the world we live in and the culture(s) we inhabit today. 

Your essay must address two or more of the following topics: science fiction and race/ism, science fiction and sex/ism, science fiction and gender; science fiction and class. You must draw evidence and support for your argument(s) from at least two of any of the assigned short stories for this class. (You may also, if you wish, bring in stories or other media not included in the syllabus.)  

List of short stories read in class:
 Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Friendly Cannibals                      C.L. Moore, “Shambleau” 
 Nisi Shawl, “At the Huts of Ajala”                                          Edmond Hamilton, “The Man Who Evolved”  
 Ted Chiang, “Exhalation”                                                          W.E.B. DuBois, “The Comet” 
 E.M. Forster, “The Machine Stops”                                        Octavia Butler, “Bloodchild”  
 William Gibson, “Burning Chrome” 
 Stanislaw Lem, “The Seventh Voyage”
