Today we started off with a discussion about the two societies present in The 100, “the ground” and “the ark.” You worked in teams to build an argument either for or against the idea that each of these societies function as a dystopia within the narrative. By engaging in an active back-and-forth debate over these two societies, we talked through some of the overarching themes of the show and examined the ways in which anarchy can be the cause of dystopian societies.
We will discuss the Darko Suvin article that you read for class today on Friday along with the Sargent article (see below).
