Course Description 103 Short Stories is designed to introduce an intensive examination of genre literature including Sci-Fi, Detective, Horror and Fantasy. This course aims to provoke discussion around the formal, stylistic and thematic characteristics of genre literature. It also aims to demonstrate the limits of genre literature and makes the students focus on its implications and engagement with current politics, society, culture and environment. The objective of this course is not only to present a broad selection of stories, but also to improve the students’ research skills, critical thinking abilities as well as their participation in discussions.
