The Feminine Gothic: Victorian and American Horror

January 15–February 19, 2023
Sundays, 5:00-7:00 p.m. (six sessions)
925 SW Washington Street Portland, OR 97205


Novels of ghosts and haunted landscapes can open the door to discussions of sociology and repression, trauma, and the cathartic function of horror. In this seminar, we will examine themes of possession, repression, haunting, and the mad woman in the attic in four Victorian and American horror novels from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries: Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper, Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, and Laura van den Berg’s The Third Hotel.
