Space travel, futuristic societies, and non-human cultures are common themes in science fiction. Speculating about the social impact of as-yet-undiscovered technologies is, after all, one of the main characteristics of science fiction literature. A more surprising theme is a parallel exploration of religion: its nature, social function, and the tensions between scientific and religious worldviews. In this class we will investigate the evolution of religion in 20th century science fiction, and draw our own speculations as to the future of religion.
