Textual Analysis PLUS!

Gothic and Neo-Gothic Fiction (Blended Learning Course)

Dr. Sabine Metzger


Having emerged in the late 18th century with the publication of Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Ortantro (1765), Gothic literature has proved to be an adaptable and flexible genre that constantly reinvents itself. Its classical tropes, such as haunted places and haunted minds, representations of violence and the oscillation between the rational and the irrational, address social, political and economic issues as well as cultural anxieties.
This course will focus on American Gothic fiction from the late 19th century to the present and examine short stories by Henry James, H. P. Lovecraft and Thomas Ligotti, and novels by Ira Levin, Shirley Jackson and Jennifer Egan. The goal of this course is to highlight the specific features of the American Gothic and to enable students to analyze texts from a variety of theoretical perspectives.

PLUS! means that this course will offer students additional room for questions, discussions and explorations. The course is designed as a blended learning course which means that it combines the conventional ‘f2f’ (or face-to-face) course format with an online format. We will meet every two weeks for three units (that is two SWS PLUS! one more optional SWS), and between the face-to-face sessions the course’s online format will guide you through the syllabus with reading and study assignments and with discussion forums – anytime, anywhere, at your own individual pace.

Required Texts:
Shirley Jackson. The Haunting of Hill House; Ira Levin. Rosemary’s Baby; Jennifer Egan. The Keep.
Short fictions by Henry James, H. P. Lovecraft and Thomas Ligotti will be made available on ILIAS
