Syllabus Description (from Canvas):

HISPANIC HORROR:

This course examines the center and periphery of horror production in the Spanish-speaking world, from the 1970s to the present day. We will interrogate common assumptions about what constitutes horror in Spain and Latin America, thereby complicating notions of what it means to translate an international genre for a culturally particular public. Topics will include: ghosts, zombies and historical memory; childhood and horror; audiovisual violence; terrifying women; and body horror.
