“Octavia in Vegas,” explores my experiences with teaching science fiction writer Octavia Butler in the English classroom. The article reveals the syllabus construction, student resistance and responses to Butler’s works, and how we interpreted her significance in popular culture. It also interrogates possible limitations of the course, such as how the material was taught and my teaching methods.
