Gothic Animals: Uncanny Otherness and the Animal With-Out

'The boundary between the animal and the human has long been unstable, especially since the Victorian period. Where the boundary is drawn between human and animal is itself an expression of political power and dominance, and the ‘animal’ can at once express the deepest fears and greatest aspirations of a society' (Victorian Animal Dreams, 4).

'The animal, like the ghost or good or evil spirit with which it is often associated, has been a manifestation of the uncanny' (Timothy Clark, 185).

In the face of the recent proliferation of the term “Anthropocene” in literary and cultural studies, how might we account for this geological epoch and its subsequent catastrophic environmental realities? As scholars of literature, we do not lack for theoretical models, both in and out of our “field.” Moreover, some of the most energetic and useful perspectives have taken up, broadly, a Marxian dialectical framework. Such perspectives include world-systems theory, ecological-materialisms, and in the field of literary studies and the humanities broadly, a variety of methodological and theoretical approaches framed under the banner of energy and/or environmental humanities.
