Great writers, great film makers and great artists in all media have employed supernatural and demonic themes differently, for it makes all the difference whether the supernatural is considered an actual realm, a psychological projection, a cultural convention or an historical genre. In this course we employ a method of close scrutiny, here called grammar, to elucidate the principles of construction specfic to each of the literary, cinematic and artistic materpieces we will be examining.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students. Pre-requisite(s): first-year university writing course and at least one prior history or methods course in art, media, film, or visual culture.
