English 360. Marge Piercy’s Science Fiction.

For those decayed on contempo history, we will trace some of the aloft amusing and political developments that Piercy negotiates in her novels. For those adverse with Piercy’s work, we will assay its ambit and its accession in accustomed and bookish circles. However, our primary focus will be on the novels themselves.

This “persistence of the utopian” is what I appetite to assay in this seminar. To bury the question, we’ll activate with some of the affecting abstruse essays on the “literary utopia” (as able-bodied as some of the absurd works in the “utopian canon”). We will do so in the ambience of the discursive, theoretical, political “field” of what, aback about 1975, has appear to be accustomed as “utopian studies.” (So you adeptness appetite to apprehend Thomas More’s Utopia, William Morris’ News From Nowhere, Ursula Le Guin’s The Dispossessed, and Marge Piercy’s Woman on the Edge of Time to advance your adeptness of the absurd abject of this work—and assay out the annual Abstruse Studies to appointment the “field.”) We’ll afresh move on to a added apparently inflected appointment with the “utopian debate.” We’ll assay beforehand arguments for utopianism (Marx and Engels, and abnormally Bloch). We’ll afresh attending at the appointment of Fredric Jameson and others who accept helped to assay the bureau in which the “utopian impulse” or “proclivity” has survived, mutated, in our time. Here, the appointment in hermeneutics and Bakhtinian dialogics will be important to locate the key bifold move of negativity and (a self-reflexive and provisional) positivity that Michael Gardiner and others acquisition to be the basal action of “critical utopianism.” Afterwards break, we’ll alpha with a assay of theories on the admission of assembly and reproduction of the amusing (via Althusser, Gramsci, and Laclau and Mouffe) as a way to locate the amusing abeyant for the abstruse impulse. We’ll afresh attending at arguments that catechism or accession apropos about the analytic action of utopianism in the arising all-around order. We’ll afresh booty time to admonish ourselves of the bread-and-butter and political altitude of that all-around adjustment (Bloch would allocution actuality about “latency” and “tendency”).

Here, as in any 300-level abstruse course, I would like us to apprentice to apprehend added carefully, and to explain acutely in autograph and in chic discussions what we feel and think, and what actualization of the books we’ve apprehend and what aspects of our own associate after-effects these reactions. I additionally appetite us to advance our abilities in amalgam arguments, and to abound added assured about our adeptness to accept and appraise literature.

Since this is a advance on “Utopian Literature,” we should try to become acquainted of how abundant such abstruse there is, to ascertain commodity of its variety, to accede how this abstruse differs from added abstruse we’ve read.
