This course will examine the historical development of the horror genre in both film and literature. Horror is a notoriously comprehensive genre, borrowing from  numerous story-telling and literary traditions. In this class we will address the heterodox nature of this genre, while examining the socio-historical underpinnings of popular works of horror stories and films, paying close attention to representations of race, gender and sexuality.
