Dystopian Fiction Masterclass

From H G Wells to Aldous Huxley, George Orwell and beyond, writers have imagined dystopias in order to express anxieties, to satirise, and to critique aspects of contemporary society. This day-long session is designed to introduce students to University-level study in the humanities and encourage students studying dystopian fiction at A Level to develop extended understandings of key texts, their historical and cultural backgrounds, and their relationship to other media forms during the period. Interactive sessions will guide students through the following topics:

  • dystopian fiction and its cultural and historical contexts (from Fritz Lang to Aldous Huxley)
  • dystopian fiction and its literary contexts (Huxley, Orwell, and beyond)
  • writing dystopian fiction (creative writing workshop).
