The Journal of Contemporary Gothic Studies
CFP and Submission Guidelines available at http://www.aeternumjournal.com/.
Aeternum is a double-blind peer reviewed interdisciplinary journal. The purpose of the Journal is to provide a focus on contemporary Gothic scholarship, bringing together innovative perspectives from different areas of study.
In particular, Aeternum will:
- place a particular emphasis on contemporary issues within Gothic scholarship, such as technology, digitality, geo-cultural politics, and global communication;
- contextualise historical understandings and analyses of the Gothic in contemporary terms
- draw attention to contemporary lines of enquiry within Gothic scholarship (with a particular emphasis on literature, film, television and music);
- place a focus on under-represented areas and disciplines which nonetheless have a strong Gothic focus and have built influential portfolios, such as design, architecture, animation, fashion, digital humanities, music, sculpture, and cultural history;
- offer varied and multi-faceted readings of the Gothic, recognising the importance and impact of cultural differences on the genre;
- have an international focus, considering perspectives and topics which originate not only from North America and Europe, but also other prolific areas of Gothic scholarship such as from Australasia;
- pay attention to often over-looked regional and local incarnations of the Gothic and how they interact with issues of a global nature.
