The New Research on Horror conference examines the current state of the genre

Wednesday, 16 November 2016 at 9:00am

Horror is currently experiencing a cultural renaissance across media, including film, television, comic books, videogames, music, and literature.

Despite this, most scholarship on horror remains confined within disciplinary limits. The conference will contest this by engaging with horror both within and across these media, bringing scholars into an interdisciplinary dialogue. We will look at horror as a transnational, transmedia, transhistorical phenomenon, but with a particular focus on contemporary iterations of the genre.
