CFP: Gothic Animals: Uncanny Otherness and the Animal With-Out

The boundary between the animal and the human has long been unstable, especially since the Victorian period. Where the boundary is drawn between human and animal is itself an expression of political power and dominance, and the ‘animal’ can at once express the deepest fears and greatest aspirations of a society (Victorian Animal Dreams, 4).

The animal, like the ghost or good or evil spirit with which it is often associated, has been a manifestation of the uncanny (Timothy Clark, 185).

Rosette Maleficarum
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, November 5, 2017

The Rosette Maleficarum prides itself on literary works that promote the darker aspects of life. From a dilapidated doll that watched her owner abandon her, to the ghost of a soldier  who wanders the battlefield, the journal records to struggles of humanity. Even so, I’m open to little innocent lights, ones that bring back the nostalgia of our youth. But who knows? Just send a piece in, and perhaps it could be published here.
