What do we need to fix in our society, and how should we fix it? As we struggle to improve through politics, culture, religion, etcetera, this course will explore the dark side of societal “improvement”. Dystopian literature and history teaches us that when seeking greatness as a large and diverse community, we cannot forget to ask “great for whom?” After all, my idea of a perfect world could be your nightmare. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.
