Politics in Modern Science Fiction
Possible prompts for essay

Due Wednesday, April 25, 2001

The essay will be due on Wednesday, April 25, 2001. It should be four or five pages, typed, double-spaced, with reasonable typeface and margins (e.g., twelve-point Times New Roman, one-inch margins on all sides). Page limits are mostly a floor, not a ceiling, especially for fiction; if you're thinking of writing in the long form, more than six pages or so, see or e-mail me.

Note that these can be launching-off points; you don't have to do these exact topics. But if you're thinking of something more radically different, e-mail or see me.

I hope these questions can be a foundation, not a cage.

Good luck.
