"Distance and Proximity"

The dynamics of relation are central to interdisciplinary study in the Arts and Humanities. The relational dyad of distance and proximity provides us with a rich set of spatial, affective, theoretical, and historical relations in which we can explore the dynamics that run throughout the fabric of our own cultural inquiry. Moreover, navigating the distances between disciplines enables the preservation and affirmation of the significance of "difference", cultural, sexual, artistic, conceptual and/or otherwise.

Forgotten Corridors: Gothic Chapbooks, Bluebooks and Shilling Shockers.

We are seeking proposals and contributions for an edited collection of essays on Gothic chapbooks, bluebooks and schilling shockers. Critical and historical studies of Gothic fiction have long struggled to conceal its disreputable and degenerate offspring: the Gothic chapbook and variants. This contemptuous diffidence still endures and as the Gothic literary tradition has advanced its claims for literary value, curiously these short tales of terror remain marginalized; however, their unique history and impact on the Gothic is unmistakable. This unique collection will focus on the history, development and transmutation of these tales of terror.

"Gothic Landscapes: Changing Eras, Changing Cultures, Changing Anxieties" due 6/15/14

Dr. Sharon R. Yang, Professor, English Department, Worcester State University

The Gothic is a genre that emerged during the turmoil leading up to and caused by the French Revolution. Its symbolic use of shattered landscapes, natural and human made, challenging the view of the individual and society as ordered and rational, continues to evolve to reflect the anxieties of the eras and changing cultures of the nineteenth-, twentieth-, and twenty-first centuries. Ruined castles and mansions, blasted heaths, and ominous mountains and cliffs give way to uncharted lands for colonization, mean streets and urban jungles, sinister laboratories, gruesome battlefields, the labyrinth of political and economic conspiracies, and the dark unknowns of the human mind and body themselves.
