ENGH 308 - Gothic

4 credits
This course examines the Gothic – a genre which explores the macabre, the supernatural, the uncanny. Through a series of dark tales that flirt with the supernatural, the course tracks the Gothic’s recurrent features and themes, asking how and why it manages to speak the “unspeakable.” Why does the Gothic emerge with particular intensity at times of cultural crisis? How and why might it function as a vehicle for social critique? Throughout the course, contemporary critical approaches to the Gothic provide students with a variety of tools for reading these texts.  Prerequisite: ENGH 150
