International Gothic MUP

  • Contains essays from some of the leading scholars in gothic studies who look at a wide range of different media, including literary texts, film, dance, music, cyberculture, computer games, and graphic novels
  • Essential reading in that it offers a redefinition of the Gothic, showing what the Gothic has become on an international scale since the 1950s
  • Globalgothic is the first statement in what may well be a significant departure in Gothic criticism
  • It is different to many books on contemporary gothic in that it is international in its coverage, with essays ranging from American, Canadian and New Zealand re-workings of ' variations
  • The only book so far to bring together the gothic and globalisation, and simultaneously shows the globalisation of gothic as a genre, mode and cultural form, as well as the gothicising of globalisation.
