Learning to Scream
A Horror Studies Screen Pedagogy Symposium
Organised by the BAFTSS Horror Studies SIG Convenors:
Dr Kate Egan (Northumbria University)
Dr Shellie McMurdo (University of Hertfordshire)
Dr Laura Mee (University of Hertfordshire)
Horror has long been a popular subject for both undergraduate and postgraduate study, with specialist modules running at many institutions and horror being a growing area of interest for doctoral research. The established significance of horror studies renders the area ideal as an example for teaching screen theory, history and practice.
This symposium brings together scholars at various levels to explore a broad range of questions around learning with and from horror in the contemporary HE landscape.
It includes a half-hour presentation by Briony Kidd and Megan Riakos on their education module using case studies from Dark Whispers - Volume 1, Australia's first all-female anthology feature (10.00 am - 10.30 am)
DATE: Friday 6 January 2023
TIME: 8.45 am - 6.15 pm
