Call for contributors
We are currently commissioning contributions to a proposed Companion to American Gothic, to be published in 2015 by a major UK academic publisher as part of a new series of Gothic companions.
Proposals for chapters of 5500-6500 words (including notes) are invited. Early career researchers are encouraged to submit, but we welcome proposals from all American Gothic scholars.
Chapters are required that offer critically erudite, authoritative, and cogently written surveys and analyses, focused on appropriate examples, addressing the following topics:
European Ghosts, American Witches: Early American Gothic Realism / Romance
Slavery and the Gothic
Romantic Gothic: The American Tradition
