In this class, we will be looking at several mysteries, disappearances, and supernatural events from the Victorian Era (1837-1901) and discussing what may have happened. Our topics for this class will include: the Eilean Mor disappearances, the Mary Celeste, the Devil’s Footprints, the lost ship in the desert, and ghost stories from period newspapers. For each mystery, we will go over the history of the event, what happened, and any necessary background information. After all that...
Students will learn a little bit of history, as well as using what they learn to think about the outcomes of historic events.
I have a Master of Arts in Early European History from the University of Nebraska at Kearney. I have been teaching and lecturing on Medieval and Victorian folklore for several years for both children and adults. Additionally, I volunteer at the Victorian Ghost Story Museum, creating online content.
1 hour 25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We are discussing mysteries that will tie into true crime, disappearances, and the supernatural. None of the details will be gory or gruesome.
