About Sheffield Gothic



Sheffield Gothic: Where you can find Cake and Death...


Who are Sheffield Gothic?
Sheffield Gothic is a collective group of Postgraduate Students in the School of English at The University of Sheffield with a shared interest in all things Gothic. The Group is part of The Centre for the History of the Gothic, and helps to organise events hosted by the Centre, as well as creating and organising the Gothic Reading Group, the Reimaging the Gothic Project, and other events. Sheffield Gothic also curates the Sheffield Gothic blog and the Reimaging the Gothic project Website. We are a friendly team of PhD students, and if you want to know more about who we are check out our Organisers Page.

What is the Gothic Reading Group?
The Gothic Reading Group brings together undergraduates, MA students, PhD students, and staff across the University of Sheffield to discuss anything dark, spooky, and, of course, Gothic. We meet a few times a term to discuss a range of texts from film, novels, poems, plays and in relation to the Gothic, which has led to the creation of one of our most used phrases (and hashtags): #ButIsItGothic. Our meetings are relaxed and informal with no requirements beyond an interest (or curiosity in) the Gothic and the time to read our chosen film or watch a film with us…the chat about it with some cake. Attendance and membership is completely open and everyone is free to suggest texts or films for discussion. #CakeAndDeath

What is the Reimagining the Gothic Project?
Reimagining the Gothic is an ongoing project that seeks to explore how the Gothic can be re-read, re-analysed, and re-imagined. We encourage both public interest and new academic avenues from students and scholars who wish to present of the Gothic using interdisciplinary avenues and creative methods. The project was initially created as a one off event in May 2015 comprising of a one day Symposium and Creative Showcase, and bringing together academic papers and creative projects exploring the theme ‘Reimagining the Gothic.’ Following the success, the project has since expanded and 2019 will see the fifth annual Reimagining the Gothic Symposium and Creative Showcase - 'Reimagining the Gothic vol. 5: Returns, Revenge, Reckonings' - which will be back in its usual May slot and take place from 10-12 May. In 2016 we also launched a project website [https://reimagininggothic.com/] which hosts academic papers and creative projects online from the event itself, but also open to contributions from those unable to attend. The Project has generously received funding from the AHPGR Forum at the University of Sheffield, the Alumni Foundation at the University of Sheffield, and from the International Gothic Association, and Sheffield Gothic are extremely grateful for this support.  #GothsAssemble

Other Projects:
In 2016 we hosted a Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon in conjunction with The University of Edinburgh and Wikimedia. The aim of the Gothic themed Edit-A-Thons in Sheffield and Edinburgh was to improve Gothic related content on Wikipedia by gathering both experienced academics and members of the public. 



Sheffield Gothic has with SIIBS and The University of Auckland to create The Gothic Bible Project. The project hosted its inaugural conference on 31st October 2017, and also launched its 'Gothic Bible Blog Series' which you can find here. The project has also announced its second conference, 'Buffy and the Bible' to be hosted at the University of Sheffield on 4-5 July 2019 (you can find more details here). To find out more about this project please visit the website https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/siibs/sresearch/gothic-bible-project or email GothicBible@sheffield.ac.uk. #GothicBible






In 2018, our Reimagining the Gothic Project spawned Gaming the Gothic, which hosted its inaugural conference on Friday 13th April 2018. Examining the meeting of Gothic and Game Studies, this event was generously funded by WROCAH and also featured a charity games arcade.

    2. MY LOVER IS BACK...
      My name is Ronald Monica from USA. I am really pleased with this service. I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called Dr balbosa, I never in a million years would have thought I’d be writing a letter like this, but when I nearly lost Andrew, my love in one of our stupid, fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything. i cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again. I read a testimony by a man called Tyce Logan about him saying how Dr balbosa helped him to get back is ex wife within 48 hours .I quickly email Dr balbosa and explained everything to him And when I was at my most desperate situation he didn’t take advantage of me. Dr Balbosa is the best and genuine spell caster. He performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it, or how this magic works, but all I know is, IT WORKS!! Andrew, my husband and I are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to Dr balbosa...

  3. As the university freshers week starts coming to an end, you will start missing your family, quite terribly indeed. We do recommend conserving energy, going to selected events and sticking to a good diet to avoid succumbing to the freshers’ flu.
