CMS.S61(ug) / CMS.S97(g) Critical Worldbuilding

This class concerns the design and analysis of invented (or constructed) worlds for narrative media such as TV, films, comics, and literary texts. We will examine worldbuilding strategies in various narrative medias and most importantly of all: students will be asked to create their own invented worlds. Attention will be paid to how race, gender, ethnicity and sexuality function to power traditional storyworlds.
