Welcome to the Gothic Literature and Visual Culture OpenLab site! Check here often for course announcements, assigned texts, essay prompts and other materials. Please take some time to explore this OpenLab course site. Use the menu to explore the course information, activities, and help.

By Friday, 8/26 at 11:59 pm, you should complete the following tasks:

  • Create an OpenLab account and join our course site
    • Login to your OpenLab account and follow these instructions to join this course.
    • If you’re new to the OpenLab, follow these instructions to create an account and then join the course.
    • Choose a username and display name that I will recognize so that I can easily give you credit for your contributions. Your avatar does not need to be a picture of your face–just something that identifies you on the OpenLab.
