The inaugural Ann Radcliffe Academic Conference in 2017 was a tremendous success and saw many presentations covering various aspects of horror studies. It is the goal with the second conference to continue the dialogue of academic analysis of horror.

Art
Cinema
Comics
Literature
Music
Poetry
Television
Video Games
Etc.

We invite papers that take an interdisciplinary approach to their subject matter and can apply a variety of lenses and frameworks, such as, but not limited to:

Auteur theory
Close textual analysis
Comparative analysis
Cultural and ethnic
Fandom and fan studies
Film studies
Folklore
Gender/LGBT studies
Historic analysis
Interpretations
Linguistic
Literature studies
Media and communications
Media Sociology
