What?s behind the explosion of the dystopian and post-apocalyptic subgenres in the past decade? How do these seer-like representations of the future revisit older narrative traditions? We will discover why these prophetic forms--straddling the realms of science, politics, literature, and psychology--are at the forefront of the popular imagination.

J-Term 2023 Course Details: 

This courses examines the sociological reasons behind the explosion of the dystopian (sometimes called “dyslit”) and post-apocalyptic subgenres in the past decade, manifested in the bestselling trilogies The Hunger Games and Divergent, prize-winning fiction such as Cormac McCarthy’s futuristic wasteland The Road, and the recent release of the film adaptation of The Giver, Lois Lowry’s young adult classic. However, these seer-like representations are not the product of the late twentieth century and contemporary period, but have a much longer lineage; for instance, E.M. Forster’s short story “The Machine Stops,” though published in 1909, uncannily predicted the iPod, Skype, instant messaging, and the Internet. In this spirit, we will identify narrative traditions this body of writing revisits to impart, ironically, a clairvoyant vision for our world’s future. Assignments include regular blog posts, longer writing assignments whose options include a close-reading essay, an op-ed, an imitative style exercise, plus three online group discussion chats from which you have a wide selection of dates/times. In short, we will discover how these prophetic forms, straddling the realms of science, politics, literature, and psychology, document, “what is past, is passing, and to come,” to borrow from William Butler Yeats’s “Sailing to Byzantium,” and assess their position at the forefront of the popular imagination.  This course is cross counted with Women’s Studies.

This course satisfies a Post-1800 Literature requirement for English Department majors. 

Students may count ENGL 520 towards  Women & Gender Studies major or minor requirements. Contact avary.thorne@unh.edu for more information.

Additional Course Details: 

The course explores the historical relationship between human societies and energy. Consider the contemporary United States, for instance. Its citizens make up some 5 percent of the world’s population but account for a quarter of the world’s energy consumption. Why? Is there something in American society that predisposes it to high energy consumption, or did the high consumption make American society? In other words, what is the relationship between the political, economic, and cultural evolution of modern America, and the evolution of its energy systems? And what does that relationship look like in other parts of the world?

Over the course of the semester, we will examine the history of energy production, distribution, and consumption around the world, together with the varied and evolving sociotechnical systems built up around those activities. We will grapple with questions of technological and social determinism – whether certain technologies make certain societies inevitable, or whether perhaps it is the other way around. Each week, we will explore one or two sources of energy, and look at their impact on the societies and people involved in its generation, distribution, and consumption. We will see how energy can shed light on topics as varied as geopolitical power relations, war, labor organizing, gender roles, leisure activities, and the climate.

Additional Course Details: 

The Vikings spread terror and destruction for hundreds of years throughout modern Britain, northern France, Belgium, Netherlands, and Russia. They also developed remarkable art forms and cutting edge naval technology, constructed important new cities (such as Dublin) and new kingdoms, including Novgorod and Kiev, and explored the New World half a millennium before Columbus. So who were these fierce warriors, intrepid explorers, and famed poets? In this course, we will investigate the origins of the Vikings in Scandinavia, the impetus for their explosion onto the European stage, as well as their culture, technology, and art. Students will read scholarly articles about the Vikings as well as source materials produced by the Vikings, themselves, and their enemies. Students will write short response papers to scholarly articles and participate in live discussions via Zoom about important sources such as the Norse Sagas. This course fulfills the Historical Perspectives Discovery Category.
