Perspectives in Feminist Horror Studies


This course develops students' analytical skills and ability to think critically about the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, class, and bodily ability through representational politics of film, televisual, and digital media within the genre of “horror.” Considering racial tropes, gendered violence, spectatorship and audience, and the role of gore and monstrosity, the course asks students to interpret and produce feminist media analysis. Recommended background: GSS 100.
