Unhomely Maneuvers: Murder in the American Campus

Much has been written about the campus novel as a literary subgenre. Critics have mainly focused on campus novels as vehicles of social satire directed toward academia. However, in my presentation I will examine Donna Tartt’s The Secret History, focusing on the function of the campus as an uncanny, domestic space which, though “home” for students and faculty alike, does not always offer domestic security. In the current presentation, I will be looking into The Secret History, Tartt’s best-selling novel from 1992, analyzing how the domesticated campus, a place of knowledge and civilization can suddenly turn into a place where primitive instincts find vend thus unsettling a whole system of values. In The Secret History, as in other campus mystery novels, we find murder in the midst of a perfectly civilized and domesticated campus and that is when the ‘homely’ campus space becomes ‘unhomely’ and uncanny. In this presentation, I will attempt to unravel the intricacies of university spaces as both setting the rules of domesticity, and challenging them at the same time.
