188-005 WBIS: Learning from the Hobbit

188-005 WBIS: Learning from the Hobbit
Instructor: Diane Crotty
Description:
Good fantasy literature gives us insight into our own world. In this class, we'll read essays which examine the philosophical and psychological truths embedded in great fantasy literature like Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Narnia Chronicles, The Hunger Games and more. We will focus on how the literature presents the idea of sustainability. To understand the essays, students will need to know the basic plot and characters of this semester's focal fantasy as noted in the class title. Focal fantasies change semester to semester.
