Alternative Gothic (grad) (2/16/07; disjunctions, 4/6/07-4/7/07)

This call for papers is a proposed panel to be held at (dis)junctions, the
University of California, Riverside's 14th Annual Humanities Conference,
April 6-7, 2007. In keeping with this year's theme, "Malapropriation
Nation," this panel asks how we might consider the Gothic in forms other
than the novel.

With the exception of a few recent studies such as Michael Gamer's
Romanticism and the Gothic, Anne Williams's Art of Darkness, and Ellen
Brinks's Gothic Masculinities, the Gothic is routinely theorized as a
novelistic form (the gothic novel as synecdoche for the Gothic). How might
we complicate such theorizations of the Gothic by citing gothic poems,
gothic short stories, gothic films/media, or gothic dramas?

Papers from all periods and subgenres of gothic are welcome.

Email abstracts of approximately 250 words to Nowell.Marshall_at_email.ucr.edu
before Feb. 16, 2007. All submissions will be acknowledged upon receipt.
