Fight Club Class

I'm teaching a student-run course this semester at UC Berkeley on Fight Club and I was wondering what everyone here thought that I should include in my syllabus.

So far I've got it down to:

History of book and movie + Bio of Chuck P.

Filming Techniques in the movie

Symbols in Fight Club

Psychology of Fight Club

Satire and Social Commentary

Project Mayhem: Fascism and Anarchy

Philosophy of Fight Club

Real Fight Clubs: The self-fulfilling prophecy

The whole thing is a combination of lectures and discussion grounded in questions taken straight from the movie such as "If you could fight one historical figure, who would you fight?"

If anyone has any opionions on a major topic that I'm missing or wants to make sure that I spend time lecturing on a certain sub-topic, please feel free to comment. Thanks.
