Monstrous media/spectral subjects

Catherine Spooner, who has contributed to OGOM since the beginning, has co-edited a new collection of essays with Fred Botting: Monstrous media/spectral subjects: Imaging Gothic from the nineteenth century to the present (from Manchester University Press, who have an excellent Gothic list, including the OGOM book itself). The approach and the range of topics looks fascinating and innovative.

Monstrous media/spectral subjects explores the intersection of monsters, ghosts, representation and technology in Gothic texts from the nineteenth century to the present. It argues that emerging media technologies from the phantasmagoria and magic lantern to the hand-held video camera and the personal computer both shape Gothic subjects and in turn become Gothicised.
