Decomposing Fictions: A Special Issue of Horror Studies

updated: 
Tuesday, October 19, 2010 - 2:01pm
Steven Bruhm

Julia Kristeva's work on abjection reminds us that horror is often keyed to things that decompose, rot, or lose their form. This formal concern is a literary one as well: fictions of horror also revel in de-composition, that is, in significations that lose their composure, in letters that refuse to convey, or in utterances that seem to be without subject or object. Horror Studies is seeking essays for a special issue devoted to horror and textuality that will address problems of textual decomposition. In the twentieth century's turn to the film image as arguably the primary vehicle for horror, "Decomposing Fictions" will address how theories and practices of textuality resonate with or operate differently from the visual horror image.
