Announcement: Reimagining the Gothic 2017: Gothic Spaces: Keynote

Sheffield Gothic is delighted to announce that our keynote for Reimagining the Gothic 2017: Gothic Spaces will be Professor Dale Townshend.

Dale Townshend is Professor of Gothic Literature in the Centre for Gothic Studies, Manchester Metropolitan University.  His most recent publications include The Gothic World (with Glennis Byron; Routledge, 2014) and Romantic Gothic: An Edinburgh Companion (with Angela Wright; Edinburgh University Press, 2016).  The recipient of an AHRC Leadership Fellowship (June 2015–December 2016), he is currently completing Writing Britain’s Ruins, 1700–1850 and Gothic Antiquity: History, Romance and the Architectural Imagination, 1760–1840, two major projects that explore the relationship between Gothic architecture and Gothic fiction, drama and poetry in the long eighteenth century.

The title for Dale's keynote and further details will follow in the New Year, so as always watch this space!

And from all of us here at the Sheffield Gothic Team, we wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year.
