Humans have imagined making artificial versions of themselves, from monsters to robots to AI, for thousands of years. Studying written and film examples of these creations helps us understand shared human concerns ranging from the nature of the divine to the desires of the flesh; from the power of the artist to the responsibilities of the parent. Join us as we explore those we make in our own image, out of whatever materials we can find: from clay to flesh to silicon–and beyond.
If you are serious about writing fiction and you want to learn more, consider taking Advanced Fiction 265. This course allows you to read serious works of fiction, discuss what you are reading, and share your own writing with a group of fellow writers. Our goal for this course is to help you refine what you have already written so you can send it to literary journals for possible publication. If you haven’t taken a fiction writing course at Montgomery college before, you can send a writing sample to get approval to take the Advanced course.
This is a fast, convenient way to complete your HUMD requirement. It only meets face-to-face one night a week, with most course discussions on Blackboard. No lengthy research paper required! The textbook is available on Amazon, usually for under $50

Students will complete journal entries, engage in spirited (respectful) discussions, and submit a final project on a topic of their choice (related, of course, to an Asian literary text discussed in class.)
The course will be taught using high interest films and audio materials.
Students must have regular access to the internet and have some proficiency in working with cloud documents.
Come on, get lit! You won’t regret it!

“When I say storytelling, I don’t just mean sitting down and telling a once-upon-a-time kind of story. I mean a whole way of seeing yourself, the people around you, your life, the place of life in the bigger context, not just in terms of nature and location, but in terms of what has gone on before and what’s happened to other people.” – Leslie Marmon Silko, Laguna Pueblo
Throughout the semester, we will explore important questions: How has our connection with nature changed over time, and how have such changes affected us culturally, spiritually, ethically, and nationally? Can we still maintain our connection with nature in a technologically saturated society?
