Writing the Body: Disability & Extraordinary Bodies in Fiction

ID : 84042   
« back to classes page
In Early Modern works like Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher, as well as in contemporary works like Connie Willis’ Doomsday Book and Octavia Butler’s Wild Seed, characters whose bodies and physical senses operate outside the perceived norm have played a critical role in the evolution of various popular prose genres. We’ll examine such characterization and narratives through the lenses of early and contemporary Anglophone Horror, Mystery, and Science Fiction/Fantasy/Speculative fiction.
