Description

This volume examines Gothic peregrinations not only from a geographical perspective but also to investigate how the genre has been at odds with strict demarcation of generic boundaries. Analyzing texts which come from outside the Gothic canon, yet prove to be deeply indebted to it, like bereavement memoirs, stories produced by and about factory girls of Massachusetts, which parallel those produced in England at the same time, and the Mattel Monster High franchise, this volume illuminate the previously unexplored fields in Gothic studies. The essays in this volume reveal the truly transnational expansion of the Gothic and the importance of exchange - exchange now seen not only as crucial to the genre's gestation, or vital to the processes of globalization, but also to legitimizing Gothic studies in the global world.

Her main areas of academic interest are the diversities and paradoxes of the eighteenth century, and the potentialities of Gothic aesthetics in literature and film.

Since 2009 she has been one of the editors of a literary journal DeKadentzya.
