NorthWest Arkansas Community College will soon have another special topics course to add to its repertoire. The course, titled “Science Fiction as Literature,” will be instructed by Timothy McGinn and offered during the spring semester, which begins Jan. 12.
The class will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3 to 4:15 p.m. in room 1008 of Burns Hall on the Bentonville campus.
The course will feature insight into the grandfathers of science fiction, such as Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, as well as modern authors. Collectively, the course will cover short stories that span over 150 years of science fiction. Individuals seeing to register for the class may visit the NWACC website.
