First published in 1999, Gothic Studies is the refereed journal of the International Gothic Association. The journal currently appears twice each year, and will soon move to publishing three times each year.
It publishes a mixture of general issues and guest-edited specials. Gothic Studies also includes a regular reviews feature, occasional interviews with significant figures in Gothic, calls for papers and conference announcements. This is the foremost academic publication exclusively devoted to the field of Gothic, and it thus represents essential reading for students and teachers of the genre.
Contributors and guest editors over the past ten years have included Jerrold E. Hogle, Robert Miles, Benjamin F. Fisher, David Punter, Fred Botting, Neil Cornwell, Marie Mulvey-Roberts, Steven Bruhm, Anne Williams, Michelle Massé, Carol A. Senf, Lisa Hopkins, Andrew Smith, Jeffrey N. Cox, Avril Horner, Sue Zlosnik, Gina Wisker, Eugenia DeLamotte, Paulina Palmer, Jason Haslam, Scott Brewster, George E. Haggerty, Catherine Spooner, Manuel Aguirre, Stephen Shapiro, China Miéville and Anne Rice. Gothic Studies aims to publish cutting-edge work by both established scholars and more recent entrants to the field.
Special issues have been produced on a wide range of Gothic authors, periods and national traditions. These have included guest-edited editions on Monstrosity and Anthropology, Romanticism and the ‘New Gothic’, Reanimating Gothic Drama, Gothic Cults and Gothic Cultures, Postcolonial Gothic, Female Gothic, Queering Gothic Films, Italy and the Gothic, Gothic in Contemporary Popular Culture, Postfeminist Gothic and Material Gothic. Gothic Studies is especially interested in commissioning special issues which expand or question the existing boundaries of the genre.
