Course Description

How much of our past selves do we preserve and carry into our futures? What happens if we can no longer trust our memories? Do we have control over what we forget and what we remember? Through the study of iconic literary works, television, and film, we will explore the ways in which questions of amnesia, memory manipulation, blurring, or partial suppression, and memory swaps have been dealt with in Science Fiction and Fantasy in the Western Tradition.
