The Open Graves, Open Minds Project
* The programme for the ‘The Company of Wolves’: Sociality, Animality, and Subjectivity in Literary and Cultural Narratives—Werewolves, Shapeshifters, and Feral Humans conference (3-5 September, 2015, University of Hertfordshire) has been finalised and can be seen here. You can register for the conference here.
We are planning to merge our two websites but, for the time being, this site will be dormant, so please keep attending to the blog and conference site for OGOM news (opengravesopenminds.wordpress.com).
* The OGOM book has now been out since November 2013 and looks fabulous--thanks to all our contributors. Details are on the MUP website. A link to this and a flyer are available on the Publications page.
* Dr Catherine Spooner, University of Lancaster, who has been associated with OGOM from the first conference and has contributed to the book, has created a blog for her Beyond Twilight project on teenage Gothic fiction.
* Matt Beresford and Kaja Frank, PhD students at the University of Hertfordshire, run a Gothic reading group, and invite you to: 'Join up and let us know which text we can't miss from our list - the more weird, wonderful, and controversial the better. Here's to long nights and heated debates!' (At the moment this is for U of H students and staff, but we invite other people to engage online.)
* The special issue of Gothic Studies is now on line. There is also a flier available from the Publications tab.
* Here's a link to the catalogue entry for an interesting new collection of essays, with a foreword by Sam George:
Lisa Nevarez, ed., The Vampire Goes to College: Essays on Teaching with the Undead (McFarland, anticipated Dec 2013). This will be of interest for those teaching vampire or Undead narratives or undead. The book was partly inspired by OGOM and the idea of vampires in the academy.
* Funding opportunities are available for a PhD in OGOM-related topics at UH. More details on the News page..
