Description: This writing-intensive seminar focuses on how narratives of horror call attention to broad forms of injustice. It examines literary, graphic, and filmic examples of horror from its radical queer beginnings in Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto, all the way to Jordan Peele’s unflinching examination of racism in Get Out.
