I am seeking essays in English to include in a volume tentatively entitled "The Spaces and Places of Horror," to be published by Vernon Press.


This volume aims to explore the complex, layered horizon of landscapes in horror film culture to unpack the use that the horror genre makes of settings, locations, spaces, and places, be they physical, imagined, or altogether imaginary. Different theoretical frameworks are welcome, and relevant comparative studies among American, European, and/or non-Western cinema are strongly encouraged.


Please send 500-word abstracts to Francesco Pascuzzi ( by April 15, 2017. Notification of acceptance should be expected by late April.
