An Online Conference

The Gothic Association of New Zealand and Australia (GANZA) welcomes papers for its upcoming online conference, to be held on 27 January 2022.


The conference will be organised in the spirit of the Association. GANZA is interdisciplinary in nature, bringing together scholars, students, teachers and professionals from a number of Gothic disciplines, including literature, film, music, television, fashion, architecture, and other popular culture forms.

  • Revisions / revisitations / reimaginings of classic Gothic texts

  • Hauntings and spectrality

  • Monsters and the monstrous
