CALL FOR PAPERS - Sensation, Reason, Imagination: Gothic Evolutions

University of Exeter
28th – 30th October 2011

This conference pursues two linked aims: first, to explore the Gothic’s
relationship with science – fact, fiction and fantasy – especially its
fascination with the cognitive, psychological and biological
underpinnings of sensation, reason and imagination; and second, to trace
the evolution of the Gothic genre itself through history, architecture,
literature, film, television and popular culture. 

We welcome the submission of 250 word abstracts for 20 minute papers 
that may address, but not be limited by, the following topics:
•       the Gothic and science
•       the Gothic through history
•       the Gothic and literary theory
•       male, female and queer Gothics
•       Gothic fashions
•       goth culture
•       Twenty-first century Gothic / The future of the Gothic

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: MONDAY 14th FEBRUARY 2011
Please send abstracts by e-mail to: Andrew McInnes [log in to unmask]
