CURRICULUM + REGISTRATION

UPCOMING EVENTS:

  • LESS PUNK, MORE SPLATTER: THE HARD ROCK HORROR FICTION OF SHAUN HUTSON (London Online)
    LESS PUNK, MORE SPLATTER: THE HARD ROCK HORROR FICTION OF SHAUN HUTSON (London Online)
    Tue. May. 11, 2021 - 7:00 pm BST - 8:15 pm BST

    This lecture explores horror novelist Shaun Hutson’s oeuvre, with particular attention to his most prolific decade, the 1980s, and offers an overview of the concurrent “literary nasties” phenomenon in Britain. With the aid of lavish illustrations, extended quotations, clips from interviews, and contemporaneous horror films, we will assess the lasting significance of – as Kerrang magazine had it – “The Shakespeare of Gore.”

  • CHRONICLE OF A DEATH FORETOLD: SPOORLOS (NYC Online)
    CHRONICLE OF A DEATH FORETOLD: SPOORLOS (NYC Online)
    Thu. May. 20, 2021 - 7:30 pm EDT - 8:45 pm EDT

    George Sluizer’s 1988 thriller “Spoorlos” unfolds as a series of prophecies, including several of the self-fulfilling variety: its characters can envision the consequences of their actions but pursue them anyway. Where many genre films utilize the element of surprise, “Spoorlos” is constructed so that its characters — and the audience — can see everything coming. This creeping, inescapable dread makes Sluizer’s film a classic, and gives it a genuinely existential dimension. Led by Adam Nayman, this class will analyze how “Spoorlos” plays with various literary and dramatic conventions from its shivery, premonitory prologue to its startling, retrospectively inevitable climax, while also examining its relationship to various cinematic influences (including “Vampyr,” “Psycho” and “The Shining”), and a comparison with its 1993 American remake “The Vanishing”—a curious and baffling case of a European filmmaker reworking and arguably disfiguring his own material in a Hollywood context.

  • PROJECTING HORRORS REAL, IMAGINARY AND METAPHORICAL: TRANS AND OTHER GENDER-NON-CONFORMING BODIES IN HORROR CINEMA (LA Online)
    PROJECTING HORRORS REAL, IMAGINARY AND METAPHORICAL: TRANS AND OTHER GENDER-NON-CONFORMING BODIES IN HORROR CINEMA (LA Online)
    Thu. May. 27, 2021 - 7:30 pm PDT - 8:45 pm PDT

    Gender non-conformity has long been a marker in cinema for murderous villainy and psychosis or has been presented as reason enough for anyone thus marked to be dispatched from their narrative universes with excessive (and often casually misogynistic) force. For transgender and gender-diverse people, everyday life can be the stuff of horror, felt especially by trans people of color. Much of screen media production, has only served, through stereotyping and ignorance, to perpetuate the real traumas and horrors experienced routinely by trans people. This lecture will debunk no small number of harmful myths about transgender people, propagated by the screen media-industrial complex and in the horror movies historically produced within it. With instructor Cerise Howard, we’ll explore the ubiquity of trans narratives and imagery within horror cinema – even if they’ve most often been deployed at a metaphorical remove from being transgender narratives and imagery.
