Beginning with an avant-garde, interactive “haunted house” displaying ways in which the everyday is already horrific, the Humanities Center invites you to an evening of lectures ranging from discussions of race/gender in horror movies to the history of ghosts in Chicago, all culminating with a multi-media performance-reading by best-selling horror fiction writer Kathe Koja.
DePaul is creating an amazing event, including a “Red String Box” art contest, and a chance to create the avante-garde haunted house. Ghosts and spirits, gender and race, and a performative reading of “At Eventide,” my story of the man with nothing to live for and the woman he tried so hard to kill . . . What he carried to her he carried in a red string bag.
