ENG 333: American Ethnic Literature

This guide provides library resources and other helpful resources to assist students working on their ENG 333 Wikipedia Assignments.


Welcome to the ENG 333: American Ethnic Literature guide. This guide is designed to assist students enrolled in Michelle Stuckey's ENG 333 course, "Imagined Futurities: Contemporary Speculative Fiction." 

Speculative fiction is considered a “supergenre" that departs from every-day realism and delves into imaginative realms. It includes various subgenres such as science fiction, fantasy, horror, and supernatural fiction. Within the speculative fiction umbrella are genres like Chinese speculative fiction, Black speculative fiction and more. Speculative fiction extends beyond literary works, extending to video games, film and television series, radio, plays and other mediums.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
