CFP: Gothic Nature, Trinity College Dublin, 17-18 Nov 2017. Abstracts due 2 April.

Gothic and horror fictions have long functioned as vivid reflections of contemporary cultural fears. Now, more than ever, the environment has become a locus of those fears for many people, and this conference seeks to investigate the wide range of Gothic- and horror-inflected texts that tackle the darker side of nature. Gothic Nature seeks to address this question, interrogating the place of non-human nature in horror and the Gothic today, and showcasing the most exciting and innovative research currently being conducted in the field.  Academic papers from a variety of different subject backgrounds, as well as interdisciplinary work are welcome, as are creative submissions from artists and performers.
