Ghosts and Modern Literature
This course explores representations of the supernatural and ghostly in global literature published between 1850-1950. From Haitian voodoo to Polynesian totem rituals, through to classic modern American ghost stories like Henry James's The Turn of the Screw or Latin American works like Carlos Fuentes's novella, Aura, this course asks you to consider what literary ghosts represent. Drawing on secondary theories from Freud, Jung, and Harold Bloom, we consider what it means to be a 'haunted text' and how ghosts relate to more generalized philosophical frameworks of religion, death, and types of epistemology. This course is geared toward enabling postgraduate employment, so many of the assignments we undertake are interdisciplinary in nature, encouraging you to develop skills you will need to enter fields like education, academia, advertising, publishing, or to apply to law school or PhD programs.
