Post by: nicholasdiak on February 20, 2021, 10:16:08 AM

A round-table discussion at the 2022 Modern Language Association (MLA) convention sponsored by the MLA CLCS Gothic Studies Forum (deadline 3/15/21; convention 6-9 January 2022)

What are the driving forces behind and recurring conceits of the twenty-first-century Gothic? Why has the Gothic assumed such a position of prominence in contemporary literature and media?

The Gothic Studies Forum of the Modern Language Association invites proposals for short presentations (7-8 minutes) addressing these questions for a round-table discussion at the 2022 MLA Convention in Washington, DC.

200-word proposals focused on a specific keyword or theme and abbreviated CVs, as well as questions, may be directed to Jeffrey Andrew Weinstock at Jeffrey.Weinstock@cmich.edu. The deadline for submissions is March 15th. Those selected for the round-table must be MLA members or join by April 7th, 2021.
