Among the writers, architects, and theorists that the class examines are: Edmund Burke, Horace Walpole, Matthew Lewis, and Etienne-Louis Boullée in the 18th century; Jane Austen, E.T.A. Hoffmann, Victor Hugo, and John Ruskin in the 19th century; and Sigmund Freud, Wilhelm Worringer, Hans Poelzig, Elfriede Jelinek, Julia Kristeva, Daniel Libeskind, Peter Eisenman, and W.G. Sebald in the 20th century.
