International Gothic Association Postgraduates
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 31, 2018

The International Gothic Association postgraduate blog is looking for bloggers and podcasters!  

 

If you are a graduate student working with any aspect of the Gothic, consider writing us a short blog post, or recording us a podcast. It could relate to your work, or any other Gothic tangent that has taken your interest. Blogs should be around 600 words; short, snappy and conversational, with the aim of sparking conversation within the IGA community. If you want to write a blog longer than 600 words, we would encourage you to split it into two or more parts, but these are supposed to be informal rather than articles or papers.

Deadline fast approaching. 

From E.T.A Hoffmann's Tales of Hoffmann and Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? to Isaac Asimov's I, Robot, Vernor Vinge's Rainbows End and Warren Ellis' Transmetropolitan authors have been exploring the human/machine interface since before the computer age. Today we stand on the threshold to the lab as the government contemplates microchipping all U.S. military personnel and office workers are already implanting themselves for convenience ala M.T. Anderson's Feed.
