This course seeks to explore the world of African American ‘speculative’ fiction. This genre of writing largely includes science fiction, fantasy fiction, and horror. In this class, we will read, watch, and discuss narratives by black writers of speculative fiction to better understand the motivation, tone, and agenda in the work of black writers. We will also consider the role of black culture and representation in the larger field. For more details on this class, please visit the department website at http://www.engl.virginia.edu/courses.
