Announcement: Sheffield Gothic has generously been awarded a Grant from the Alumni Foundation

The University of Sheffield Alumni Foundation is delighted to provide sponsorship to Sheffield Gothic’s’ Reimagining the Gothic’ Project. The Alumni Foundation exists to channel the donations of Sheffield alumni (former students), staff, and friends of the University, into projects involving current students. We would like to thank the University’s supporters for their generosity, which has made tremendous strides in enhancing the student experience. More information about the Foundation can be found at: www.shef.ac.uk/alumni/foundation

Sheffield Gothic is delighted to be awarded a grant from the Alumni Foundation to support our ‘Reimagining the Gothic’ Project. Since our first Reimagining the Gothic Symposium and Creative Showcase, held at the University of Sheffield on 9th May 2015, the success of the project has exceeded all of our expectations and interest in the project has grown year on year. In response to interest and demand, our one off, one-day event has grown into an annual conference bringing together and showcasing papers and Creative projects from a wide range of disciplines (including Archaeology, Biblical Studies, photography) and creative modes. The success of the project has also led to the creation of the ‘Reimagining the Gothic’ website where we aim to continue the Gothic conversation online, and showcase the amazing papers and creative projects we receive to a wider audience.

The grant from the Alumni Foundation will allow us to build on this success. We will be working to improve the content and functionality of the website, and also improve our 2017 Symposium and Creative Showcase, ‘Reimagining the Gothic: Gothic Spaces,’ and Sheffield Gothic is incredibly grateful to the Alumni Foundation for their generous grant.

As ever, Sheffield Gothic remains committed to showcasing critical and creative reimaginings of the Gothic that are free and accessible to all, and open to everyone from any and all disciplines and level of study. Everyone is welcome! #GothsAssemble
