Happy Gothic Hogmanay – You Can Close Your Box Now Pandora!

I am hoping Pandora will close her box today for the Hogmanay and we can all celebrate the rise of Happy Gothic!!

2017 will see the launch of the OGOM Research Centre and the completion of our ‘Company of Wolves’ publications (one edited collection and 2 special journal issues). I will be applying to Readership in July and hope to be advertising another PhD bursary for a doctoral student to be attached to the project and begin work in September 2017. Our ‘Books of Blood’ festival will open in Limerick in the autumn before the exhibition tours in the UK in 2018 (super excited about this).

OGOM sends congratulations again to Kaja for her achievements this year. She will begin the New Year as a doctor. And to Curtis and Daisy who met at the OGOM Company of Wolves conference in 2015 and have just announced their engagement. OGOM is delighted for you both.

February 2017 will see the publication of the long awaited new book from Catherine Spooner Post-millennial Gothic: Comedy, Romance and the Rise of Happy Gothic and I am looking forward to welcoming her back to the university for a preview in the run up to the launch of the Research Centre.

Lots to look forward to in 2017 then. OGOM thanks you for your continued interest and support. As 2017 draws to a close we are just a few visits short of 50,000 hits on the site to date!!!! A landmark indeed. This is a wonderful acknowledgement of our work in the field and our services to Gothic studies.   

Happy Hogmanay OGOMERS!!!

    Happy New Year and thank you very much for the tip on that book. Looks like something I want to read and might be able to read. Plus it doesn’t come out for a while, so I can put it in a list and not worry about it for a couple months! Huzzah!
