Description: The possibilities we imagine for the future of medicine tell us much about our present culture's priorities, as well as its pitfalls. Paying close attention to the rhetoric that masks - or does not - the social commentary embedded in contemporary science fiction novels and films, this course places a strong focus on close reading and purposeful writing.
