Studies in Horror and Gothic

Primary tabs

This September the Palgrave Communications is accepting article proposals on themes focusing on Studies in Horror and the Gothic. Contributors are challenged to think of the field through a disciplinary and interdisciplinary lens. Some areas that contributors could focus on, but are not limited to include:  
•      Theories of horror and monstrosity;
•      Horror, the Gothic, and pedagogy;
•      National Gothic(s) and horrors;
•      Female Gothic/horror histories;
•      Specialised themes in horror and the Gothic (law, sexuality, disability, etc);
•      Ethnographic approaches to horror and the Gothic;
•      Horror by the decade;
•      Lost Gothics;
•      Post-millennial horrors and Gothic(s). The collection will be guest edited by Brittain Fellow Dr. John Edgar Browning (Georgia Institute of Technology). LMC Professor Carol Senf is among the contributing authors.  Dr. Browning states, “horror relies mostly on new ways of (re)imagining the Gothic and terror, whereas the Gothic relies exclusively on modes, persons, and locales we traditionally associate with the Gothic tradition.” Browning believes that Horror and Gothic studies is still evolving and will continue to grow. Individuals interested in learning more information on submissions and article proposals are encouraged to visit:  The advisory board for the collection is Jeffrey Andrew Weinstock (Central Michigan University, USA), Carol Margaret Davison (University of Windsor, Canada), Harry M. Benshoff (University of North Texas, USA), Dylan Trigg (University of Memphis, USA and University College Dublin, Ireland), Maisha L Wester (Indiana University, USA), and Jesse Stommel (University of Mary Washington, USA).
