The Gothic

Presiding Officer: 
Cheryl Edelson, Chaminade University of Honolulu

Given the recent popularity of the Twilight series of novels and films, television programs such as True Blood and Grim, and numerous remakes of Gothic “classics” such as Frankenstein and Dracula, it is clear that Gothic motifs of haunting, ghosts, the undead, and the supernatural are still “alive and well” in contemporary culture. This panel will bring together critical responses to Gothic texts and their various iterations.
