Hours & Credits
OverviewThis course analyses representations of ontological and social difference in gender, race, nationality, physicality and humanity. It explores the ways in which different narrative forms present and engage with notions of otherness, from women to slaves, from vampires to ghosts. Through close readings of novels, short stories, plays, poems and films the course will present thorough literary and theoretical pictures of the way in which we engage with the fear, attraction and mystique that surrounds discourses of hierarchy, power and alterity.
