CFP Deadline Extension

We are extending the deadline for abstract submissions to the slightly more Gothic 13th March. (Unfortunately a Sunday rather than a Friday.)

A short version of the CFP is included below. For a more comprehensive call for papers, including an extended discussion of the theme and examples click here.

We invite 20-minute papers on all aspects of Gothic time in art. Suggested topics and themes include (but are not limited to):

  • Temporality in classical Gothic texts
  • Ruinophilia
  • Explorations of ruin and decay in the arts
  • Spectres of the past or future
  • Time and decay in the Gothic
  • Temporal ruptures, such as regression, progression, displacement or echoes
  • Gothic spaces that function outside or beyond time
  • Parallel universes, ruptured time and relativity
  • Temporal excess that “real” time cannot contain
  • Traumatic time, temporal wounds and repairing time
  • Timelessness and immortality
  • Fundamentalism as regression
  • Medievalism in the Twenty-first century
  • The “found manuscript” and constructing authenticity through notions of the past and/or future
  • The return of the past and eternal recurrence
  • The temporal gravity of Destiny and/or fate

The conference organisers welcome the submission of proposals for short workshops, practitioner-based activities, performances, and pre-formed panels. We particularly welcome short film screenings; photographic essays; installations; interactive talks and alternative presentation styles that encourage engagement.

Please send paper proposals of 300-500 words, along with a short bio to gothictime@mail.com by Sunday 13th March.
