VI International Gothic Congress, 'Gothic Convergences' FFYL, UNAM, Mexico City, April 2014

Tuesday, May 28, 2013 - 12:19pm
International Gothic Congress

During the last years, Gothic Literature has just begun to be accepted as a literary field worth of study among Mexican scholars. The doors remain open to deepen into the study of a style whose manifestations go beyond the barriers represented by time, culture, genre, and art modes.

Objective: After the great response received in the previous Gothic Congresses (2008 - 2012), the aim is to keep encouraging the interest in the Gothic among both students and scholars at the UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) and other Mexican institutions. To achieve this, we propose to start from the study of the plural presence of the Gothic in various modes of art, as well as time and space contexts.

R/evolutions: Addressing Pedagogical and Institutional Change in Higher Education

The figure of the prostitute is more than an emblem for mid Victorian religious, social, and sanitary reform; she is emblematic of challenges to the domestic narrative of a morally centered middle class that was at the heart of the British Empire's self-identity. The prostitute is representative of increased anxieties about miscegenation, sexuality, suffragist movements, and the visibility of women in roles outside the private sphere.
