Description: Gothic America concerns the many instances of terror, horror, the grotesque, and the sublime in American literature, from the Republic’s troubled birth in the late 1700s to the onset of industrial modernity in the early 1900s. In surveying the theoretical underpinnings of the Gothic, this course will discuss race, sexuality, religion, science, and philosophy. In short, this course explores why America remains a haunted nation.
