What makes a novel "Gothic"? This course explores various definitions of the genre through close reading of representative novels, supplemented by critical literature. After an overview of approaches to the genre and an outline of its stereotypical characteristics and elements, the course will examine three thematic categories (which often intersect and overlap): Gothic Spaces, the Monstrous Other, and Gender and Sexuality. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site... More
