In the Arcades Project, Benjamin wrote that it is from the gates of the imagination that lovers and friends draw their energies. Over the past few decades, scholarship has been ever more inclined to treat the imagination not as false or unreal, but as an embodied, affective, and fluid mode of creating meaning and experiencing the world. The concept of bodily imaginaries in queer and feminist studies, for instance, seeks to overcome the strict duality between imagination and the body: as Maggie Nelson points out in The Argonauts, “in the field of gender, there is no charting where the external and the internal begin and end.”

Since Carol J. Clover’s seminal work Men, Women, and Chainsaws (1992), feminist readings of horror movies have gained an enthusiastic theoretical momentum. In employing various frameworks and lenses and by complicating our spectatorial position, this rich corpus of literature has perhaps contributed to a resignification of the genre and its tropes. However, amid the emergence of luminous movies that defy and challenge horror’s misogynistic and racialized foundations, several questions arise: Is contemporary horror cinema really abjuring its heteronormative, original structure? Does mainstream horror still convey trite reactionary messages with renewed vigor?

The sudden arrival of COVID-19 and its profound impact on nearly all aspects of daily life for people across the globe will undoubtedly produce a substantive re-examination of the canon of ‘plague writing’ that has, historically, been dominated by European voices. While the predominant influence of European authors in the genre of plague writing can, to a certain extent, be explained historically by the Black Death being the most deadly pandemic in human history, more recent and more global pandemics provide the opportunity to re-examine the situation of these canonical texts and to consider the stakes of plague writing on a broader international stage.
