Vol 18, No 2 (2019): Tropical Gothic: Literary and Creative Works

Tropical Gothic: Literary and Creative Works

Special Issue Editors: Anita Lundberg, Roger Osborne, Katarzyna Ancuta & Agnieszka Stasiewicz-Bieńkowska

This is the second published collection of the two-part special issue on the theme Tropical Gothic. While the first issue provided a space for reflection upon the unique social, historical, political, cultural and environmental conditions of the tropics; this second issue demonstrates how creative writers and artists have a particular role to play in such reflections, through producing the cultural artefacts for the contemplation of others, or by contributing to such debates as creative practitioners and critics. The papers concentrate on Tropical Gothic literary and creative works from South and Southeast Asia and Tropical Australia.
