Here's the reading list for my Near-Future Science Fiction course, organized roughly by when the novels that I'll be teaching next semester are set:
George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale
Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go
Ken MacLeod, The Execution Channel
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
Octavia Butler, Parable
of the Sower
Richard Morgan, Market Forces
Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash
David Brin, Earth
William Gibson, Neuromancer
Maureen McHugh, China Mountain Zhang
Bacigalupi, The Windup Girl
I'm so psyched that less than a year after waking up with the germ of this course in my head, I'll actually be teaching it.
In addition, the American Studies Film Series next semester will feature near-future SF films. More on both when the film series schedule is complete and my syllabus for ENGL 216 is online.
