'The Gothic' is widely popular in contemporary literature, art, film, television and transmedia. The Gothic is often characterised by haunted landscapes, buildings and people through the presence of ghosts, monsters or other supernatural entities, and the sense of influence of the past on events in the present; and accompanied by sensations of threat, dread, anxiety and fragmentation of identity. Today's Gothic cultural forms are diverse, complex and exciting. Students who take this subject will discover a range of historical and contemporary Gothic narratives and aesthetic practices as they creatively and critically explore the diversity, meaning, and power of this enduring mode of expression.
