HMN3030 Gothic Revivals
Credit Points: 15

This unit investigates “revivals” of the Gothic from the late 18th century to the present, exploring the way the gothic manifests itself differently within different historical periods. Students will investigate philosophical ideas about fear, such as the sublime, the uncanny and the abject. Because the gothic is inherently a transgressive mode, students will evaluate the way its “revivals” tend to contest social norms, raising issues about sexual, gendered, and national identities.
