“Weird Fiction,” the creepy, unsettling genre that intersects with literary, horror, fantasy, and magical realism, is perfect reading for dark fall evenings. Each week we’ll read different examples of the genre and discuss what qualifies as “weird” when we talk about fiction. We’ll see whether the weird world looks different through a female lens as we review a selection of stories by Angela Carter, Karen Russell, Aoko Matsuda, Kelly Link, and others. This spooky (not gory) class is perfect for lovers of spectral children, haunted houses, and general weirdness. Texts to be provided by the instructor.
