“Undead Tropes – New Directions in Gothic Studies”

On 12 January 2024 in Berlin a workshop will take place titled  “Undead Tropes – New Directions in Gothic Studies,” which aims to follow the evolution of Gothic elements in diverse genres and contexts, and to explore how the mode takes on distinct forms in various media and artefacts. Papers are invited that address current developments of the Gothic and Gothic Studies, including questions such as: Which aesthetics, media, and tropes have gained significance? Which current cultural fears and issues does the Gothic address? Which functions does the Gothic have today?

Confirmed Keynote Speaker: Catherine Spooner (Lancaster University)

The submission deadline for proposals is 1 October 2023.
