Clasen’s research integrates horror study with the natural and social sciences, in particular human behavioral biology and evolutionary and cognitive psychology. His academic work builds on the evolutionary, or biocultural, approach of literary scholars such as Joseph Carroll, Brian Boyd, Brett Cooke, and Jonathan Gottschall.
