Learning to 'Spell': Visions of School in Fantasy and Science Fiction

FRS 126

Info tab content
This course explores fantastical works that showcase the very real issues that shape education, including race, class, gender, privilege, and disability. How might television shows such as The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina or fiction by writers like R.F. Kuang and Ursula Le Guin inform the ways we imagine the educational policies and institutions we frequently take for granted? Throughout the semester, we'll consider the experience of characters like Hermione Granger, Kamala Khan, and the X-Men to see how they speak to our own fantastic lives as students and engaged community members at Princeton.
