The Liverpool International Gothic Festival, 18-24 November 2013
CALL FOR PAPERS, CREATIVE PIECES & PERFORMANCES
Festival Conference 20-21 November 2013
In Gothic Pathologies David Punter poses the question: "What would it be like to inhabit a world … in which Gothic were seen 'at the centre'?" Drawing upon Liverpool's Gothic identity, haunted spaces and dark cultural history, the first Liverpool International Gothic Festival will focus on bringing Gothic expressions in art, film, literature and performance to the centre of Liverpool life. Combining, amongst other events, physical theatre, working exhibitions, film screenings, ghost tours, readings, music, academic papers and educational events, the Liverpool International Gothic Festival aims to explore spectral resonances and undead interventions into Liverpool life.
Proposals from artists, writers, performers and academics are welcomed on, but not limited to, the following topics:
The haunted city
The monstrous city
The labyrinthine city
Regional cities/regional Gothic
Please send your abstracts for 20 minute academic papers and proposals for creative pieces and/or performances that address the Festival themes to Dr Ben Brabon at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 1st November 2013.
