OverviewThis course explores the Gothic as an artistic and cultural phenomenon from its earliest development in eighteenth century literature to its contemporary manifestations in modern cinema. Apart from discussing key works of the Gothic imagination, students will also seek to understand this genre in terms of its philosophical, psychological and sociological dimensions. As students engage in a thorough analysis of each text or film, they are also encouraged to think critically about the Gothic in relation to the European/American cultures in which it has developed.
