Home is Where the Horror is
Panel discussion with Gordon White (moderator), Anya Martin, Brookelynne Warra, Evan J. Peterson, Michael Griffin, Sam Cowan
From The Yellow Wallpaper to Hereditary, the transformative quality of Weird fiction makes it uniquely adapted to explore what happens when the very underpinnings of our most intimate familial and romantic relationships fall away and the space between people looms as empty and arbitrary as the void. Panelists will discuss examples from classic and contemporary authors and filmmakers, as well as how they employ The Weird to address home, domestic violence, mental illness, familial expectations, caregiving, and other circumstances where home becomes entrapment.
