Gothic Sensations

Gothic Sensations â€" Sensational Gothic
University of Salford, UK, 10-12 September 2009

The recent (re)turn to the study of emotion in literary studies invites a
reconsideration of the Gothic as a mode that relies on the emotional
response of those who are confronted with the uncanny and who, as a
result, experience fear. The ways in which writers represent emotional
response and immediacy is central to understanding the Gothic as a force
that transcends and transmutes culturally enforced structures of (self-)
control and the fashioning of gender roles and stereotypes.

I am seeking Editors of E-only Journals (not just adjunct websites to
journals that are primarily conceived of as print) who would like to
participate with me in a digital roundtable at the Modern Language
Association (MLA) Conference in Philadelphia, 27â€"30 December, 2009. Digital
roundtables are new to the MLA: editors and potential contributors and
readers will meet in a room with eight or so networked computers. Editors
could display recent issues of their journals, talk to potential
contributors and discuss the problem of taking e-scholarship seriously.

Even as we attend to the global and transnational dimensions of literature,
Pascale Casanova has encouraged us to study both the formation and
character of so-called "small literatures" of dominated nations or of
subordinated regions within nations. While we have developed a rich
vocabulary for discussing cosmopolitanism and transnational literary
studies, we have not completely theorized regionalism or
regionalization--the process by which a literary and cultural space assumes
a local rather than a national or cosmopolitan character. This MLA panel
will move in the direction of arriving at a richer theoretical and critical
understanding of regionalism and regionalization by examining the local
