Call for Proposals: Gothic Literary Studies, University of Wales Press

Gothic Literary Studies


Ever since its heyday in the eighteenth century, the Gothic has flourished in a variety of national and cultural contexts. While once the Gothic was associated with a Romantic culture that embraced the novel, drama and poetry, it later found its way into other media such as radio, film, television, music and more recently video games. This vibrant Gothic tradition has also generated much varied and extensive critical discussion, and it is these ongoing debates that the Gothic Literary Studies series aims to encourage. Books in the series have explored the history of the Gothic from the eighteenth century to the present day and have variously examined the religious, medical and geopolitical contexts of the Gothic in all its many manifestations. Written by leading scholars, the series is dedicated to publishing pioneering research on the Gothic and to analysing the Gothic’s diverse and emerging trends.

The University of Wales Press is committed to developing publishing opportunities on the Gothic, and we look forward to hearing from you if you would like to contribute to the series.
