From Jules Verne to Japanese anime and manga to Soviet utopias and Cuban cyberpunk, there's a lot of good science fiction written by human "aliens." This course shows you how this science fiction is similar to, or how it differes from, the science fiction we've grown up with.
Daniel Koon is a tireless translator and documenter of Cuban and other Spanish language science fiction. Several of his dozens of translations have been published (and even translated into Greek) both online and in print. Daniel has been teaching physics and science fiction courses at SLU for over 20 years.
NOTE: Suggested online and in-class readings will be made available.
