The adjectival qualifiers attending rape are numerous: statutory rape, marital rape, date rape, acquaintance rape, and virtual rape. In delineating manifold patterns of sexual violence, these terms also index the historical and formal contingencies of recognizing sexual harm. Despite the work of feminist activists, scholars, and artists in specifying structures of sexual violence, “rape” persists as an analogy for nonsexual violation to authorize political recognition of other social movements (the “rape of the earth” once lamented by environmentalists).

The Gothic is a "negative aesthetic" (Botting 2014, 1). It influences a plethora of cultural phenomena from literature and other media to fashion and music. It is also an ever-shifting framework of creative expressions and critical approaches, which has a tendency to reinvent itself and adapt to new cultural circumstances. The Gothic troubles the familiar, replaces complacency with dis-ease, offering rich opportunities for new explorations and expressions of seeming fixities, interpretations of history, certainties of gendered identity.
