Science Fiction Studies is currently soliciting proposals for a July 2018 special issue celebrating the bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818), a work that forever changed the genre of science fiction. In Frankenstein, Shelley experimented not only with subject matter, new scientific inventions and their many terrifying and horrific possibilities, but also narrative and form. Her use of multiple frame narratives, nested one within another, was a notable shift from the eighteenth-century novels she grew up reading, and her merging of popular culture’s fascination with science and the Gothic broadened the emerging genre of science fiction.

This proposed MLA 2018 (January 4-7, NYC) session seeks papers that address the relationship between Catholicism and English Gothic literature in ways that move beyond simplistic observations of the genre’s use of anti-Catholic tropes. Especially welcome are papers that situate Gothic literature in the history of English Catholicism or which approach the religious content and contexts of Gothic literature from “post-secular” points of view. Papers might examine anything from 18th- and early 19th-century Catholicism’s influence on the rise of Gothic literature, to the lingering anti-Catholicism (or, conversely, Catholic nostalgia) in 21st-century Gothic literature and/or film, or anything in between.
