Posted by Glennis Byron on March 18, 2011 in News tagged with , ,

Textus: English Studies in Italy. No. 3,   2012

Call for Papers: Gothic Frontiers

Editor: Francesca Saggini (Università della Tuscia)

Co-editor: Glennis Byron (University of Stirling)

This issue of Textus aims to showcase and provide further space for debate and discussion to researchers engaged in exploring, testing and redrawing the expansive frontiers of gothic and its multiple, evolving discourses.

We invite proposals on topics including, but not limited to:

• intermedia adaptations; afterlives and transmissions

• subcultures, fads and fashions

• transcultural gothic contaminations and manifestations beyond traditional Anglophone positions

• gothic pop and the canon/gothicising the canon

• hauntology

• generic redefinitions and mutations

• gothic and the stage

• gothic and transmedia storytelling

• gothic techné: from the human to the trans-human

• testing the limits: gothic hybridism, monstrosity, degeneracy, contagion, miscegenation

• gothic spaces and interstices.

Please send a 300-word abstract to both editors by 1 June 2011: fsaggini@unitus.it and glennis.byron@stir.ac.uk
