The Open Graves, Open Minds project relates the undead in literature, art, and other media to questions concerning gender, technology, consumption, and social change. It extends to all narratives of the fantastic, the fabulous, and the magical.

This site is an immensely useful research tool for Gothic studies, the fantastic, and the magical in fiction and folklore. To learn how to make the most of it, please look at the ‘How to use this site’ page here.
