How do we understand and make sense of encounters with aliens, psychics, and ghosts? This course engages feminist, queer, and anti-colonial perspectives to explore the paranormal through a cultural lens, asking what our responses to the extraordinary reveal about the world we live in every day. Students will also gain skills in translating their engagement with sources and course conversations into effective critical writing.
