One thought on “class notes for 2/21/17

  1. Kelz, thanks for posting this. However, these brief notes don’t capture the many important things we covered in class, relating to three texts and science fiction more broadly. Can you please revise, and have others help you fill in the gaps if you need?

    Also, a friendly reminder that class notes should be posted no later than the night of the class you took them.
