At Home with Horror? Terror on the Small Screen

At Home with Horror? Terror on the Small Screen

Description

At Home with Horror? Terror on the Small Screen, Friday 27th October - Sunday 29th October.

Conference organised by the Melodrama Research Group and supported by the Centre for Film and Media, School of Arts.

Please note there will be no refunds if you cancel your place after registering.

Taking recent developments in horror on television and the small screen into account, the aim of this conference is to engage with such advances. Can we say that it is on the small screen where critical and creative innovations in horror are now being made? How has the expansion of satellite television and online sites impacted on the genre? How has the small screen format developed the possibilities of horror? Is the recent alignment with ‘quality TV’ evidence of horror’s new mainstream status? This conference will also reflect on seminal works on television horror and revisit the history of the genre. In addressing these questions the conference will underline the importance of the small screen for horror, within the study of the genre and of the medium, and ask: is the small screen now the home of horror?
