The Haunting of Modernity

Subject: INQS

Catalog Number: 125

Registration Number: 8115

The "ghost story" is one of the oldest and most beloved literary genres. American culture, like so many other cultures, has produced an astonishing array of literary texts and films which use the paranormal (ghosts, vampires, zombies, etc.) to explore its deepest fears and anxieties. In this course, we will analyze some of the greatest "haunted" works of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries in an effort to better understand American culture itself. 4 credits.
