This course will look at how the distinction between culture and nature actually conceals existing social relations. Through reading philosophy and science fiction and viewing films, students will examine the historical framework of the representation and uses of nature, as well as such topics as biotechnology, artificial intelligence, bio-politics, virtual reality and the naturalization of race, sex and class MU Core category: Sustainability & Science. 4 crs.
