Description

The perception of the Other has changed while a predilection for othering has endured. Our primary goal with this collection of essays is to contribute to the nascent field of Postcolonial Gothic Studies, understood binomially as a postcolonial version of “Gothic studies” and as the study of “postcolonial Gothic.”

Contributor Notes

Collection of essays exploring the link between Gothic and racism. Gothic is a culture of alterity: it explores the Other and it posits itself as an Other. It found its roots in the concerted efforts of 18th- century authors who longed for the simple and exciting plotlines of medieval romances. At the same time, they were careful to populate other countries and/or other eras with ghosts, vampires, and monstrous villains. More recently, Gothic studies have flourished alongside a plethora of Gothic fiction, movies, and TV shows. These new works employ the genre's conven- tional themes and cast of characters, while adding new features for new audiences.
