English Lecture Society

Have you wondered about the paradoxical appeal of horror films? About the functions of scary stories and the prevalence of monsters in popular culture? If so, come to the last ELS event of the year, when Associate Professor Mathias “Dr. Acula” Clasen gives an introduction to his research on horror. On this the darkest day of the year, prepare to confront the darkest corners of the human mind and to plumb the terrifying depths of human prehistory as our resident horror expert explains the appeals and functions of horror entertainment. But remember—in academia, no one can hear you scream.

Everybody is welcome. No registration necessary. See also https://www.facebook.com/events/1607505269270195/
