ENG 100/128 - Wonderlands (Core/First-Year Seminar)

Three or Four Credits
Offered Periodically

A portal opens to another world: what wonders will we find there? In this course, we will travel down rabbit holes, through secret doorways, across borders, and back in time, encountering the stuff of dreams-and sometimes nightmares. Along the way, we will ask what these alternate realities tell us about our own world and our own imaginations. Texts may include: Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, J.M. Barrie’s Peter and Wendy, The Wachowskis’ The Matrix, Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away, Guillermo Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth, Octavia Butler’s Kindred, and short works by Margaret Cavendish, Jorge Luis Borges, Ray Bradbury, and Adrienne Rich.
