Fantastic Course 3.0: Horror Fiction

Halloween is approaching – the time of costume parties, carving a lantern out of a pumpkin, and telling scary stories. 

So we want to talk about horror fiction. 

In ancient times, fear was giving a person a chance to survive in a dangerous, hostile world. But even now, in a comfortable and safe today, we strive to bring an extra dose of fear into our lives: thrillers, media, dangerous attractions. As paradoxical as it may sound, people like to be afraid! 

We will tell about the horrors that began with Gothic novels, rose to incredible heights thanks to Edgar Allan Poe, descended into the eerie depths of the afterlife with Howard Lovecraft, fed by Robert Bloch, Dean Kunz and finally overflowed and flooded all the shores by the texts of «King of the Horror» – Stephen King. 

This is a Fright Monster, who liked the feeling of fear, the feeling of complete loss of control over their feelings since childhood. A writer who writes so slowly that the reader realizes that he is in the hands of a maniac of the highest quality. But describes fictional horrors in order to help a person cope with the real ones. 

Let’s talk about Stephen King?

 And the most interesting will be your favorite «horror stories», which we hope you will share with us! 

We are waiting at the reading room 6.2, on the 20th of October at 18.00 

Moderators: Yevhenia Breznytska and Iryna Filonenko. 

Don’t forget about masks.

«AcademicIntegrity: values ​​in daily actions. Ordered works»

We invite you to join the open dialogue «AcademicIntegrity: values ​​in daily actions. Ordered works».

Every third Wednesday in October is the International Day of Action against Contract Cheating, established by the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI). This day is designed to draw attention to the most pressing problem of today’s education and ask questions: why do students buy works, and some – write works that were ordered, what is their motivation and how to deal with this widespread phenomenon today. 

In the spring in the space of Igor Sikorsky KPI the first open dialogue about dishonest behavior among students and writing off as one of its main manifestations was held. On the 20th of October, there will be a second open discussion on academic integrity in daily university life, and the main topic will be ordered assignments. The event is held jointly by Department of Student Affairs, Library, Students Council, Trade Union Committee and Student Scienсe Association of Igor Sikorsky KPI. 

The following issues will be raised during the dialogue: 

  • What motivates one student to order works, and other – to write the ordered works; 
  • How to distinguish the purchased work from the authentic work of the student; 
  • How to prevent bad behavior among the students and overcome existing problems and more.

 Registration by the link. 

The event will be held in compliance with anti-epidemic requirements, so the number of places for face-to-face visits is limited. Anyone else can join the online broadcast (link coming soon).
