In recent years, Gothic Studies has evolved into a solid field of enquiry. 'Gothic' as a critical term has the potential to bring together perspectives from many areas within the cultural studies umbrella, with both an innovative and canonically-informed focus on literary forms and the writing process. Numerous incarnations of the Gothic mode can be found in multiple literary genres all over the world, from fiction to non-fiction, showing multiple forms and nuances. These different manifestations are not only typical of the geographical region in which they originate, but also provide proof of the interdisciplinary nature of the Gothic itself.

In recent years, scholars of different fields have turned their gaze to the complex relations between humans and non-humans. Theorists and thinkers of ecocriticism, animal ethics, queer studies, disability studies and numerous other disciplines have challenged the humanist notions that place (certain kinds of) human beings above all the "other" creatures, with whom we share our world. In the meantime, our material existence has been reconfigured by the human genome project, in-vitro meat, custom-made pharmacology, bioart and other scientific developments.
