ACLA 2016: A Sense of Unease: The Materiality of Horror

updated: 
Sunday, September 6, 2015 - 11:27am
Thomas Stuart (UWO), Riley McDonald (UWO) / ACLA

The terms "terror" and "horror" as defined by gothic novelist Ann Radcliffe, are diametrically opposed: while the former "expands the soul and awakens the faculties to a high degree of life," the latter "freezes and nearly annihilates them" ("Supernatural" 150). This distinction subordinates horror's focus on the material - the visceral, the abject - to the intellectual stimulation provided by terror. Blood, guts, and the grotesque are the norms of horror and while gothic fiction anxiously stages the destruction of the human body, this panel is interested in how sensual apprehension constructs the body.
