Students in this course will study monster narratives using digital humanities tools to learn how to theorize monstrosity, map monster narratives while contextualizing them culturally and historically, and re-present these narratives visually. During this course, students will read selections from Marie de France’s shape-shifter lais and beast fables along with Shakespeare’s Winter’s Tale, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and select 20th/21st century zombie and vampire short fiction along with J. K. Rowling’s beast narratives. Classes will combine critical discussion of literature with mentoring in several foundational digital humanities technologies to encourage students how to visualize narratives and integrate digital humanities data into their critical reading practices.
