CFP for Aeternum: The Journal of Contemporary Gothic Studies (ISSN: 2324-4895) for Volume 4.2 (June 2018).

Deadline for submissions: March 5th, 2018.

Aeternum is an open-access biannual online journal of peer-reviewed academic articles on all aspects of the contemporary Gothic. The purpose of the Journal is to provide an emphasis on contemporary Gothic scholarship, bringing together innovative perspectives from different areas of study. Aeternum are currently seeking submissions for the next general issue, which has a planned publication date of June 2018. Prospective articles must be submitted by March 5th, 2018.

Aeternum welcomes contributions from the breadth of contemporary Gothic Studies, with a particular focus on:
•contemporary issues within Gothic scholarship, such as new technology, spectral digitality, geo-cultural politics, and global communication;
•multi-faceted readings of the Gothic, recognising the importance and impact of cultural differences on the genre;
•innovative perspectives on the Gothic within traditional areas such as literature, tv and film; 
•areas of research which go beyond disciplines or subjects traditionally associated with Gothic research;
•under-represented areas which nonetheless have a strong Gothic focus and have built influential portfolios, such as animation, comics, dramaturgy, video-games and virtual reality, food studies, music, fashion, and pedagogy;
•international scholarship which considers perspectives originating not only from North America and Europe, but also other prolific areas of Gothic scholarship such as Australasia.
•over-looked regional incarnations of the Gothic and how they interact with issues of a global nature.

Aeternum publishes English language articles of 4000–6000 words in length, and uses the author-date version of Chicago Style referencing. All manuscripts should be submitted in electronic form in Word format. All articles should be accompanied by an abstract of 200-250 words. All abstracts should be followed by a maximum of five key words.

Articles will go through the peer-review process to determine acceptance or rejection.
