"How dare you get a happy ending?!" Hades (Disney’s Hercules)
We tend to be fascinated by "the Dark Side" – whether it comes in the shape of Darth Vader, Voldemort, Macbeth or Alice in Wonderland's Queen of Hearts. In this course, we delve deep into the evils that haunt British literature and culture. Theories such as psychoanalysis, structuralism or gender studies (among others) will be applied to real and fictitious characters and people in order to understand what makes villains and villainesses think, act or simply be evil.
Attendance during the first session is mandatory to partake in this course!
This course can be completed with an AT, term paper or written exam
A reader plus additional texts which have to be purchased and analysed for the course will be announced in the first session.
