Launching with a first session on 7 November, GOTHICA is a new, interdisciplinary, postgraduate-led reading group interested in the ever-present role of the Gothic in popular fiction and culture. Texts will typically range from the nineteenth century to the contemporary as we trace the long history of the genre and its spectral appearance in fantasy, horror, and science fiction. We will meet once per month to discuss some short readings that explore a particular theme, subgenre, or context of the Gothic.
The first session, GOTHICA: Murder and Romance, will take place on Thursday 7th November, 5-7pm, in the Constance Naden Room (Arts 103). Reading will be circulated prior to the seminar via email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the mailing list. Please also look out for posts on our blog and follow our Twitter @Gothica_UOB for more information. All staff and students welcome!
