Catherine is a Reader in Literature and Culture in the Department of English and Creative Writing at Lancaster University, and co-president of the International Gothic Association. She has published widely on Gothic literature, film and popular culture with a particular interest in fashion. She is the author of Fashioning Gothic Bodies (Manchester University Press 2004), Contemporary Gothic (Reaktion 2006) and the forthcoming Post-Millennial Gothic: Comedy, Romance and the Rise of Happy Gothic (Bloomsbury 2017). She has also co-edited several books including, most recently, Return to Twin Peaks (Palgrave 2015). She is currently researching the cultural afterlife of the Lancashire Witches and a Gothic cultural history of the white dress.
I’ll be talking to Catherine about all things Gothic and, of course, she’ll be sharing her selections for Apocalypse Books.
