This weekend Sheffield University and the Sheffield Gothic Group host the Reimagining the Gothic 2016: Monsters and Monstrosities Showcase and Symposium. I’ll be presenting a paper at the academic symposium on Friday 6th May. I’ll also be live tweeting the symposium on our twitter feed over at @TimeandGothic (as long as my phone battery lasts) so if you aren’t able to attend you can still join in the discussions.
Reimagining the Gothic is project created and hosted by Sheffield Gothic, a postgraduate collective at the University of Sheffield. Now in its second year, Reimagining the Gothic is an ongoing project that aims to take the Gothic outside of its academic ‘comfort zone’ and encourage new thoughts, theories and engagement through creative and interdisciplinary methods. The academic symposium will take place on Friday the 6th of May and the creative showcase on Saturday the 7th of May.
