Utopias and Dystopias - Dr. Majerus: Home


Welcome to Utopias and Dystopias! This course will be an inquiry into utopian experiments and dystopian imaginings, and a small-scale experiment in utopian learning. What we do and how we do it will depend in large part on you, the students, and what we as a learning community determine are the most important things to learn and accomplish over the course of a semester, and how best to go about learning and accomplishing them. I am open to your ideas, your findings, and your vision. All I ask is that you 1) take the idea of learning seriously, 2) keep an open mind, and 3) bring a notebook or blank book to class to use as your journal/workbook.
