Beschreibung

Postfeminist Gothic addresses and explores the intersection of two much debated and controversial concepts: postfeminism and Gothic. This edited collection of original and exciting essays introduces a contentious new category that re-invigorates and challenges Gothic and feminist criticism. It raises a set of questions involved in this critical positioning: What does a 'post'-ing of feminism imply? How does the modifier 'postfeminist' change Gothic and, by extension, what does the notion of 'postfeminist Gothic' infer? Examining a wide range of Gothic texts, from Ann Radcliffe's romances to modern horror film, in conjunction with diverse postfeminist theories, from backlash to postmodern feminism, the essays in this collection provide a site of exchange and debate, foregrounding the conflicts, contradictions and ambiguities evoked by 'postfeminist Gothic'.
