Dystopian Societies and Utopian Dreams

This course explores the contemporary fascination with dystopian literature and movies including what themes dystopian societies have in common, what leads to dystopia, and what dystopian pop culture demonstrates about modern society and psychology. It then dives into real life policies that could be considered to be “dystopian” as well as dystopian societies’ counterpart — utopian societies of the past and present — to compare and contrast these different worlds as plausible premises.
