Course Description

This section examines how reality and fantasy are understood and constructed by, across, and in the Americas. Materials drawn from across the curriculum (e.g., from history, psychology, media, and communication studies) are used to question definitions of reality, fact, truth, fiction, fantasy, magical realism, myth, virtual space, reality-TV, and corporeality. Students gain the ability to defend their positions about how categories such as reality and fantasy differ and overlap.
