I’ve made a few changes to the website. We think that the site can be an immensely useful research tool for Gothic studies, the fantastic, and the magical in fiction and folklore. To help students, scholars, and those with a general interest in these fields, I’ve added a ‘How to use this site’ page. There’s a link to it on the Welcome page and you can also access it via a new menu option underneath the ‘About’ menu tab. We’d welcome any feedback on this on how we could make it even easier to find the material you’re looking for.
There is also a new forthcoming event, ‘Animal-Human Boundaries: Banishing the Big, Bad Wolf‘, details of which can be found on the Events page and from its own menu tab. This is part of the nationwide Being Human Festival, and Sam has previous blogged about it here. We will give fuller details nearer the time.
And we have added pages about the two forthcoming OGOM Publications: the book of edited essays, In the Company of Wolves: Werewolves, Wolves, and Wild Children – Narratives of Sociality and Animality, and the special Wolves and Wilderness issue of Gothic Studies. These, too, will be filled out with more detail over the next few weeks.
