Course description: In this course, we will explore the world of contemporary science fiction through close reading of texts (short story collections, novels, graphic novels, and personal essays) by Indigenous and Black writers and writers of colour. How does centering the voice of “the alien,” which is so often synonymous with “the other,” challenge popular, white and/or Western ideas of science fiction and about science itself? Subverting a question that Octavia E. Butler was often posed—“What good is science fiction to Black people?”—We will analyze the ways science fiction is mobilized by Indigenous and Black writers and writers of colour as radical tool for reflection, criticism, ingenuity and hope.

(2 marks) Due back to me Monday March 5th by 11:59PM Mountain Daylight savings time zone (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada Time zone). Marlon James won the 2015 Man Booker Prize for Fiction for A Brief History of Seven Killings, making him the first Jamaican author to take home the U.K.’s most prestigious literary award. In the work, James combines masterful storytelling with brilliant skill at characterization and an eye for detail to forge a bold novel of dazzling ambition and scope. He explores Jamaican history through the perspectives of multiple narrators and genres: the political thriller, the oral biography, and the classic whodunit confront the untold history of Jamaica in the 1970s, with excursions to the assassination attempt on reggae musician Bob Marley, as well as the country’s own clandestine battles during the cold war. James cites influences as diverse as Greek tragedy, William Faulkner, the LA crime novelist James Ellroy, Shakespeare, Batman and the X-Men. Writing for The New York Times, Michiko Kakutani said of A Brief History of Seven Killings, “It’s epic in every sense of that word: sweeping, mythic, over-the-top, colossal and dizzyingly complex. It’s also raw, dense, violent, scalding, darkly comic, exhilarating and exhausting—a testament to Mr. James’s vaulting ambition and prodigious talent.” In addition to the Man Booker Prize, A Brief History of Seven Killings won the American Book Award, the Anisfield-Wolf Book Prize, the OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature, the Minnesota Book Award, and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. James is in the process of adapting the work into an HBO television series. Born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1970, Marlon James graduated from the University of the West Indies in 1991 with a degree in Language and Literature, and from Wilkes University in Pennsylvania in 2006 with a Masters in creative writing. He lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota and teaches English and creative writing at Macalester College. In his presentations, James addresses topics related to writing and the writing process, as well as issues pertaining to the history of the Caribbean, race and gender in the US and UK, and youth subcultures as expressed in literature and music such as hip-hop and reggae. His widely read essay, “From Jamaica to Minnesota to Myself,” appeared in The New York Times Magazine. In early 2016 his viral video Are you racist? ‘No’ isn’t a good enough answer received millions of hits. He is currently working on the Dark Star Trilogy, a fantasy series set in African legend (Riverhead, 2018).
