CFP: Neo-Gothic Narratives

 

Recent years have seen the strong development of Neo-Victorian studies, including a theorization of the project by scholars including Ann Helimann, Christian Gutleben, Marie-Louise Kohlke, Mark Llewellyn and others.  This collection on the Neo-Gothic invites similar attempts to define and theorize what exactly qualifies as such a text, what mobilizes the employment of the gothic to speak to our own times, whether nostalgia plays a role, and whether might there is room for humour or only for trauma in these narratives across various media.

 

We invite submissions on neo-Gothic topics that may include, but are not limited to, the following:
