Students are introduced to works of imaginative literature (primarily short stories, science fiction, essays and autobiographies) on scientific topics and non-fictional works of science. Students consider how the intersections between literature and science raise fascinating questions in science, literature, and ethics. Students study vocabulary in the content area, and review grammar and research writing skills. Potential readings include Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World,” Lewis Thomas’ “Lives of a Cell,” Oliver Sack’s “The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat,” Watson and Crick’s “The Double Helix,” Andrea Barrett’s “Ship Fever,” and Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle.” (Semester, .50 credit) Offered 2020–2021.
