Is it every fan's dream to discuss Star Wars formally, at school? On this episode of Skytalkers, Caitlin and Charlotte talk to Michael and Hannah, who teach a theology class on Star Wars. They discuss what the class explores, what they've learned from students, and much more. Then, Charlotte and Caitlin come up with their own dream paper topics for writing about Star Wars. Should Caitlin write her masters thesis on Star Wars? Finally, they talk about what their "dream" Star Wars class would consist of. What would a Skytalkers class look like?
