Do many schools have classes about classic Gothics?
I don't know of any classes on Gothic literature, although there must be some out there. I think that classic Goths do make it into English literature classes. Someone already mentioned Frankenstein and there is Jane Eyre and Dracula (which I consider Gothic although not necessarily a romance.)

I think a class on Gothic Literature would be excellent in a Women's Studies program. So much of classic Gothic literature is about the image of women, the terrorizing of women, the man as savior, the beauty and the beast, the virgin and the whore, the hidden feminine, yadda, yadda, yadda.
