Gothic Afterlives (2141LHS)

Gothic Afterlives traces the history of the Gothic genre from its origins in the ghoul-infested castles and spectralised landscapes of 18th century art and literature through to the secretive suburban blood-suckers of contemporary television drama. From its beginnings the Gothic has been a popular and controversial phenomenon that has drawn its energies from the darker regions of the imagination and the borderlands of taste. In the Gothic nothing is as it seems. The world of cheerful and comforting appearances, secure homes, grand cities, and the reassuring solidity, identity and sexuality of the body are all made vulnerable by the uncanny effects of the Gothic imagination. In this course we'll follow the development of the Gothic in selected texts, films and TV series. Prerequisite: Assumed knowledge of essay writing and critical interpretation.
