shadows of doubt
D.Q. Slotkins

Was it a trick of the light? A figment of your imagination? Or just a dream from which you couldn’t quite wake? The yawning terrors of the night usually recede by dawn, but they sometimes linger as shadows in our minds. The horrors we can see, hear, and prove are frightening enough, but worse yet are the fears driven by chilling doubt and lurking dread. Although the sudden shock subsides, the unknown haunts us long after, a terror unresolved. Go ahead and tell the story. Who would believe it? Do you even believe it yourself?

Continuing our popular Halloween tradition, Professors Gino DiIorio (Theater), Jay Elliott (English), and Jennifer Plante (The Writing Center) will read scary tales of the uncanny, the unknowable, and the unfathomable. Combining the beauty of language, the art of storytelling, and the desire for community, Readings in the Higgins Lounge continues to showcase the power and pleasure of the humanities.

Co-sponsored by the Higgins School of Humanities; the Department of English; and the Theater Arts program at Clark University
