CHICAGOThe Illinois Humanities Council (IHC) is accepting applications for its free weekend renewal seminar for public librarians, The Horror! The Horror! March 16-18, 2007, at Starved Rock State Park, Utica. The IHC pays for room and board; attendees are asked to provide their own texts.

Horror fiction is considered one of the most powerfuland popularof all literary genres, so powerful that some of the earliest motion pictures were adaptions of horror stories. Professor Parley Ann Boswell, Eastern Illinois University, Charleston, is the seminar scholar and will lead discussions with participants. Seminar participants will explore the horror fiction of Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson, Anne Rice and Margaret Atwood. To supplement reading and discussion, the group will watch several horror cinema classics.
Beyond providing intellectual renewal, the seminars provide a retreat atmosphere in which educators from diverse academic backgrounds and disciplines can gain deeper insight into their profession. Tuition, lodging and meals are provided by the IHC.
