Courses in Horror from Borderlines Open School

Guest Post

Borderlines Open School for Advanced Cross-Cultural Studies is offering some courses in the new year that will definitely be of interest to horror fans:

Why Lovecraft? Why Now?

(January 4–February 1, 2021)

Instructor: Rebekah Sheldon

In this course we will focus on the New Weird, a group of 21st-century authors who are rewriting Lovecraft’s oeuvre and taking his images in dramatically new directions.  
The Politics of Horror
(February 17–March 10, 2021)
Instructor: Bethany Doane

In this course we will approach horror as an inherently (politically) ambiguous genre, situating its representational politics and ideological subtext alongside its aesthetic effects, and thereby complicating simple readings to think through a range of possible interpretations.
