Twilight Taught in Honors College Literature Course

This is an actual thing happening at an actual college. Ohio State University is teaching sparkly tween paranormal romance Twilight as part of an honors literature course. Taken from the actual course’s syllabus, which can be downloaded here:

While we read and discuss some important, influential narratives about the supernatural – Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw, and Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight as well a few minor works – we will also explore how these texts, like much other fiction, try to create particular reading experiences, as they push us to consider the nature and importance of literary imagination and the way fiction’s seductiveness is tied to other potentially dangerous attractions.

For good measure, here’s how a fairly esteemed college feels about Twilight.
