"This module explores the diverse uses that contemporary authors (from the past fifty years) make of science and technology in their works, and the distinct ways in which critics and scholars engage with science and technology in the cultural field. We take a broad definition of 'science', 'technology' and 'literature'. Besides reading fiction, poetry and drama we may also look at selected works of electronic literature, non-fiction, performance, graphic novels, film, and museum exhibits."
