There’s no better location for study of the British horror genre than London-- site of the Whitechapel (Jack the Ripper) murders and home of home of Mary Shelley, whose Frankenstein launched the horror tradition as we know it. This course enables students to study the British horror film with access to scripts and other archival material at the British Film Institute and other archives. Our location also enables students to visit and write about a number of London museums, film sites and studios and to see two horror-themed West End plays. Students will also be able to evaluate the gendered dimensions of horror-as-tourism in London and meet scholars and media experts who will be guest lecturers. Finally, this is an opportunity for cross-cultural understanding and adaptation to the life and culture of a diverse global city.
Dr. Linda Mizejewski and Education Abroad Specialist Tiffany Pierskalla will be hosting an information session about the course on Friday, December 4th at 3:00pm. Please register for the Zoom. For more information about the course and how to apply, please visit the OSU Education Abroad website.
