Keynote speaker: Professor Ken Gelder (University of Melbourne).
The conference will be organised in the spirit of the Association. GANZA is interdisciplinary in nature, bringing together scholars, students, teachers and professionals from a number of Gothic disciplines, including literature, film, music, fashion, architecture and popular culture. It is the aim of the Association to not only place a focus on Australasian Gothic scholarship, but also to build international links with the wider Gothic community as a whole.

The list goes on and goes way back. Celebrity culture in Canada, although vastly under-estimated, continues to be a massive cultural and economic force to be reckoned with and such a reckoning is long overdue. This proposed edited collection seeks to uncover how celebrity operates in Canada when Canadian subjects, institutions, media, audiences and/or industries are involved.

Hope you'll be interested in making a contribution! The article should be in English and about any topic related to the field of higher education of social science. Thank you again for your attention!
