Utopias and Dystopias
The utopian world is the one of prosperity, equality, an ideal we are all seeking. Dystopia, on the other hand, demonstrates that the public good can be destructive.

In this course, we will discuss the major literary works that originated from the two opposite genres. We will explore the concepts, authors, and problematic subjects that pop up in this respect. We will find out how the authors of the past imagined our modern world and why it always appeared tragic.

Who created this course
Our actor
Charlie Swanson
Why are lectures delivered by actors?

More often than not, specialists who are over the moon when writing their papers and doing their research do not feel enthusiastic about delivering their ideas and texts in front of a camera. This understanding influenced our decision to invite actors who feel comfortable and confident when being filmed. The expertise of our authors ensures high-quality content, whereas the professionalism of our actors buoys up its appeal to the audience.

I've completed the course "Become an expert in the history of art". Amazing format. The presentation of the material was so fascinating that 24 hours just got away. I thank the lecture hall for this opportunity to have used the time constructively, having watched such interesting and enjoyable lectures. They actually provide a lot of information, which is varied and new, but you don’t feel tired afterwards and there is no confusion in the head. I now have a desire to definitely listen to wonderful courses on fashion and architecture!
