Because the genre is rich in spectacle and high on adventure, it is easy to overlook its quintessential commitment: to peer back on life as it is actually lived from an outside perspective.
From its inception, be it space opera or philosophical fable the genre has unmasked anthropocentrism, provincialism and all forms of chauvinism that buttress a de facto normative status quo. Science fiction sets out to see Earth as one planet among others, humanity as one among many species, feet and hours as one spatial and temporal scale among many.
SF works by eliciting the laughter that arises from incongruity, or the satirical chuckle that arises from the recognition of the absurdity of various beliefs and actions that seem when unexamined, completely normal, habitual, unremarkable. Most strikingly of all, SF explores what it means to look at ordinary existence as a fable or a game, a ludicrous as well as a ludic undertaking.

The difficulty with the history of censorship is that it looks so simple: It pits oppression against freedom of expression. But if one looks harder, it appears more complicated—and full of surprises. How did censors actually do their work? How did they understand it? And how did it fit into the surrounding social and political context? By studying the day-to-day operations of censors under three authoritarian regimes—Bourbon France in the 18th century, British India in the 19th century, and Communist East Germany in the 20th century—it is possible to rethink our understanding of censorship in general.

What is or what should be the purpose of undergraduate graduation? Some make instrumentalist arguments for college, saying that it prepares students for the workforce or to be better citizens, or that college cultivates empathy and related virtues. Others maintain that the pursuit of truth for its own sake provides the sole justification for college. If they are right that the point of college is truth, then what kind of speech and inquiry best supports its pursuit?
Should college be a place where freedom of speech is cultivated and expressed, however controversial and even hurtful it might be? Or ought higher education to impose limits on free speech and inquiry to protect the sensitivities of groups or individuals or to strengthen the advancement of knowledge?
How much or how little should politics be present in college classrooms and campus life? Should teachers and students be activists, and, if so, when and how? Where, ultimately, is the point of college to be found?

Why do we keep returning to to make sense of the twentieth, and now twenty-first century, and what makes this year such a threshold moment for periodizing British and global Anglophone literature? While we may attribute the holding power of to the unprecedented violence of the Second World War, Rich's research suggests that it is due instead to the extraordinary social repair imagined during postwar reconstruction through the British welfare state. This presentation is taken from Rich's book-in-progress, States of Repair , which offers a new literary history of the Second World War by focusing on wartime visions of rebuilding Britain.

Aristotle has used his character Oedipus as a perfect example of a tragic hero, as he has hubris such that he is blind to the truth. He refuses to listen to wise men, such as Tiresias, who predicts that Oedipus has killed his father, Laius.

Thus, Oedipus is an ideal example of the tragic hero, as he caused his own downfall, falling from his own estate and facing undeserved punishment.
