AMERICA: THE HORROR GENRE AND CULTURAL ANXIETY
In this composition course we will work toward conclusions about how
our culture creates and reacts to horror. We will pay close attention
to the formation and function of the horror genre in American culture.
Our reading and writing activities will allow us to study the
recurring themes in the genre, the various modes of representation,
and the cultural significance of horror, ultimately discovering the
usefulness of the horror genre in the early 21st century.
