What does a climate change disaster novel, a bloody prison riot satire, and an apocalyptic but redemptive collection of poetry have in common? Adam Nemett‘s We Can Save Us All, Ryan Chapman’s Riots I Have Known, and Jason Gray’s Radiation King use unusual (and sometimes extreme) settings to investigate the human condition in exciting, new, and even comical ways.
Another Earth will explore the design of imaginary (or constructed) worlds. We will study examples of worlds built in literature and visual art and our creative work will span and combine these mediums. The class will be composed of readings, screenings, discussions, studio work, and writing workshops. The primary focus for each student will be creating written and visual art to flesh out a world of their own design.
