Course - Section Title Days Time Location
ENGL 203 - 02 Monsters, Inc. M - W - F - - 0815 - 0920 OEC 208
CRN: 22464 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Heather M. McNiel Monsters are a big business: from Disney’s cute, cuddly monsters to nightmarish versions of zombies, vampires, and giant lizards, huge franchises have been built around monsters and the terror or fascination they inspire in us. Our obsession with monster stories and their adaptations may seem to be a recent phenomenon, but history is full of examples of monster stories that have been reinterpreted and reformulated for new purposes and audiences. This course will examine some of the most influential literary works featuring monsters, and trace how they were adapted and reinterpreted for various artistic and commercial purposes, often using different genres or formats. Texts may include FRANKENSTEIN, DRACULA, BEOWULF, as well as films and other media. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing.
