ID : 5940   
« back to classes page
Glamorous spies, international espionage, sleeper agents, fake news, and Facebook bots-we are living in an age of increasing paranoia where foreign enemy agents seemingly lurk around every corner. This course will examine examples of the popular spy genre in literature, film, art, and non-fiction, starting with the development of the genre in the West to its representations in the Soviet Union and Russia to today's tense political climate. We will discuss examples from Britain (James Bond, John le Carre) to Russia (Boris Akunin) and to the U.S. (The Americans, Edward Snowden). Ages 18 and up.
