REMINDER: New Approaches to Gothic Literature: Panel at 2018 ASECS Annual Meeting, March 22-25

Monday, August 21, 2017 - 10:49pm

Friday, September 15, 2017

As the bicentennial of the publication of the early Gothic’s masterpiece, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, 2018 is an ideal time to reconsider how we understand the aesthetic qualities, ideological underpinnings, historical development, and cultural work of Gothic literature. Derided as juvenile or worse through most of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the Gothic has enjoyed a resurgence in interest among scholars in recent decades—and of course, it has never lost the interest of popular audiences.

deadline for submissions:

This call seeks abstracts for the upcoming ACLA conference for papers that will focus on representations of adoption in literature. The goal of this panel is to explore how literary representations of adoption and the formation of adoptive families have changed over time. To do this, we are looking for a broad range of papers that address adoption in literature from different national, religious, racial, gender, and theoretical perspectives. We are also open to definitions of adoption that include varying degrees of legalization.
