Over the past two decades, a preponderance of Man Booker Prize winning novels (and even short-listees) have restored to life vanished worlds, suggesting that the appeal of the past persists in contemporary Anglophone fiction. This roundtable seeks to showcase contemporary historical fiction written since 2000 in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. If historical novels represent sites of contested memory or cultural trauma, then which critical junctures do these recent novels depict? Possible areas of exploration might include wartime novels post-Pat Barker, the evolution of neo-Victorianism, the roles of pastiche and parody, the status of historical metafiction, and the new directions taken by novels from the Antipodes.

Gothic Animals: Uncanny Otherness and the Animal With-Out

'The boundary between the animal and the human has long been unstable, especially since the Victorian period. Where the boundary is drawn between human and animal is itself an expression of political power and dominance, and the ‘animal’ can at once express the deepest fears and greatest aspirations of a society' (Victorian Animal Dreams, 4).

'The animal, like the ghost or good or evil spirit with which it is often associated, has been a manifestation of the uncanny' (Timothy Clark, 185).

In the face of the recent proliferation of the term “Anthropocene” in literary and cultural studies, how might we account for this geological epoch and its subsequent catastrophic environmental realities? As scholars of literature, we do not lack for theoretical models, both in and out of our “field.” Moreover, some of the most energetic and useful perspectives have taken up, broadly, a Marxian dialectical framework. Such perspectives include world-systems theory, ecological-materialisms, and in the field of literary studies and the humanities broadly, a variety of methodological and theoretical approaches framed under the banner of energy and/or environmental humanities.
