American Horror Stories: Transgression, otherness, and a pedagogy of the grotesque in social studies education

This paper theorizes various effects of the grotesque as an expressive mode visible in social studies education. The paper examines two case studies of instruction in high school social studies courses, calling attention to how grotesque expressions of America implicate teachers and students in confronting issues of transgression and otherness.
