Gothic Literature, Film & Culture

Primary tabs

Accepts undergraduate submissions

We welcome papers and presentations on any aspect of the Gothic in film, literature, media, performance or other forms of cultural expression. All critical approaches are welcome.

You can propose an individual paper or a panel session of three or four presenters. Graduate students are especially encouraged to submit papers or panels. Undergraduate presenters and mentors please see our undergraduate policy guidelines on the website.

Individual papers will be grouped into sessions based on historical, thematic, disciplinary or critical affinities. Participants will be asked to serve as session chairs. Sessions are scheduled in one-and-a-half hour slots, ideally with four papers or speakers per session, so individual papers should be limited to a length of approximately 10-15 minutes.

Interested individuals are asked to submit an abstract of no more than 250 words (including presentation title) and complete contact information (name, institutional affiliation, mail and e-mail addresses, and contact telephone number).

 

Panel proposals of 4 speakers and/or discussion panels of 4-6 participants each are also encouraged.

 

Please include the following:

Panel Title

Name and contact information for the Panel Chair

Titles and abstracts for each paper or discussion

Contact information (see above) for each presenter

 

In general, the Associations discourage participants from requesting specific dates, but in special circumstances accommodations can be made.

 

Please address any questions, problems, inquiries, or hauntings to:
