Supernatural and Horror Literature
This course focuses on the diverse traditions of supernatural and horror literature in different cultures. The course gives particular attention to the social, cultural and “spiritual” traditions of different nations as expressed through their “dark tales.” We will also think and write about the themes, forms, conventions, and styles that connect the broad diversity of texts we study.
