Princeton University, March 23-26, 2006

The Mysterious Unknown: The Gothic and Its Human Others
Seminar Organizer: Ruth Bienstock Anolik, Villanova University

subject with the mysterious and horrifying supernatural, beyond human
experience. This seminar will address the tendency of the Gothic text
to replace the supernatural figure of horror with the human Other, the
person who is represented as being inhumanly horrifying. The seminar
will be divided into three sections (one for each day of the
conference):

"Long after the professor had come to doubt whether lives held crucial points as often as the men conducting or undergoing them imagined, he still considered that one day in early spring had made a difference for him. The day began his deeper-deepest-acquaintance with 'Lycidas,' now for him the chief poem of the world. . . . The day had humbled him and tossed him confidence."
