Historias 20 – Charly St-Georges on the cultural lens of horror films in Latin America and Spain

Dr. Charles St-Georges of Denison University sat down with Dave McLaughlin to discuss his recent book Haunted Families and Temporal Normativity in Hispanic Horror Films – Troubling Timelines and its exploration of “three recent horror films from the Spanish-speaking world that, rather than explicitly referencing recent political violence, speak to the societal conditions and everyday normative violence that serve as preconditions for political violence.” They also discuss writing strategies, audience, and what’s next on Charly’s research agenda.
