This research essay is fairly open-ended; you may choose any media object(s) you like, as long as you are engaging centrally with some of our course’s ideas about the weird, the fantastic, the irreal, the sublime, the eerie, the cosmic, etc. Likewise, you may choose any theoretical focus or historical moment; our course readings are a good place to start, but as the requirements below illustrate, you must go beyond them as well, bringing your own research into your paper. You may deal with a single text, or you may compare and contrast two, maybe three different texts; I wouldn’t recommend trying to tackle more than that in a paper of this length. Above all, I want to see you write about what you are interested in, and I want to see original, creative, and theoretically grounded ideas.
