Description: The course introduces students to 17th and 18th century English literature that shift the boundaries between the imaginative arts (or humanistic knowledges) and the empirical and universalist agendas of the Scientific Revolution. How did writers capitalize on philosophical and scientific developments with new storytelling forms like—science fiction, utopian tales, and IT-narratives?
