International Centre for Gothic Studies
Since 1988, the University of Stirling has been a world-leading research hub for the study of Gothic literature and culture. For thirty years, Stirling has been hosting major conferences such as the International Gothic Association; Globalgothic: Technology, Media, Horror; Scottish Gothic, 1764-Present, as well as the Patrick McGrath Symposium. Since 2008, Stirling has also been home to several international AHRC-funded research projects, including Global Gothic, Writing Britain’s Ruins, and Popular Occulture in Britain, 1875-1947.
In 2017, Stirling consolidated this research by founding the International Centre for Gothic Studies. This multi-disciplinary research centre brings together leading scholars in Gothic Studies working in and across a range of disciplines at the University of Stirling.
