We welcome papers and presentations on any aspect of the Gothic in film, literature, or other forms of cultural expression. All critical approaches are welcome.
You can propose an individual paper or a panel session of three or four presenters. Graduate students are especially encouraged to submit papers or panels.
Individual papers will be grouped into sessions based on historical, thematic, disciplinary or critical affinities. Participants will be asked to serve as session chairs. Sessions are scheduled in one-and-a-half hour slots, ideally with four papers or speakers per session, so individual papers should be limited to a length of approximately 15 minutes.
Submit a one-page (200-300 word) proposal or abstract (via regular mail, fax, or email) complete with your name, affiliation, and contact information by November 30, 2009, to:

to present the paper at the conference, and multiple submissions to
different areas are not allowed. Please note that you must be present at
the conference to read your own paper. For more information on the PCA/ACA, please go to:
