7th Global Conference
The Erotic

Tuesday 11th September – Thursday 13th September 2012

Call for Papers

Mapping the field of the erotic is a complex and frustrating endeavour; as something which permeates lived experience, interpersonal relationships, intellectual reflection, aesthetic tastes and sensibilities, the erotic is clearly multi-layered and requires a plethora of approaches, insights and perspectives if we are to better to understand, appreciate and define it.

The "Overlooked" Years: Discussions of Early Television Horror - April 11-14, 2012

PCA/ACA

Up to this point, horror on television has been seen, as explained by Matt Hills in The Pleasures of Horror, "conceptually and generically dispensable." With the popularity of such television fare as True Blood, The Walking Dead, and Supernatural, early shows are sometimes left in the shadows of these contemporary explorations or horror. Hills details early incarnations of horror on the small screen as being clustered under the concept of 'Gothic TV,' which distances the viewer from the visual text in terms of location or content that is mixed with elements of the Gothic or science-fiction.
