Tucson Humanities Festival – In Search of Fright: Tales of Monsters, Ghosts & the Undead

When: October 27, 2021 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Tucson Humanities Festival: In Search of Fright
The dark recesses of human imagination have always been haunted by scary and shadowy figures. Zombies, vampires and ghastly spirits emerge in story and legend, across different cultures and times, representing fear of the unknown. But they also become forbidden thrills, taboos that indulge our sense of mystery and danger. Why do we seek out the spine-tingling, the eerie and the uncanny? What do they tell us about ourselves and our world? And what happens to monsters when they go Hollywood?   College of Humanities Faculty Panelists:
