Gothic Feminism Conference 2017

Gothic Feminism Conference 2017


Gothic Feminism presents:
Women-in-Peril or Final Girls? Representing Women in Gothic and Horror Cinema
Wednesday 24th May – Friday 26th May 2017
University of Kent


Gothic Feminism is a research project based at the University of Kent which seeks to re-engage with theories of the Gothic and reflect specifically upon the depiction of the Gothic heroine in film. The project raises questions of representation, interpretation and feminist enquiry in relation to the Gothic heroine throughout film history including present day incarnations. This project illuminates the concerns, contradictions and challenges posed by the Gothic heroine on-screen.

This year's 3 day conference will consider the relationship between Gothic and horror cinema and the representation of gender within each. Are the women in these films the archetypal Gothic ‘woman-in-peril’ or horror’s conventional ‘Final Girl’, or both?

The keynote speaker shall be Dr Xavier Aldana Reyes (Manchester Metropolitan University)
