Screen Life Horror
June 13 + 16, 6-8pm ET
Miranda Ruth Larsen
This course explores the horror in our everyday use of screen technologies, inviting students to interrogate the place of screens in their lives through media. Drawing on films classified as “desktop horror” and “screen life horror,” as well as the Reddit/YouTube genre of “Let’s Not Meet” stories, participants will consider how the ubiquitous presence of screens in modern life offer fertile grounds for connection, paranoia, entertainment, and true terror.
