Gothic Style(s), Gothic Substance: Gothic Manchester Festival Conference

Introduced and chaired by Dr Linnie Blake.

Is there substance to the Gothic’s many styles? Does the Gothic continue to reveal the great unspoken truths of our world? Did it ever? Is the Gothic anything more than a commercial product that may be sold, as a style, to a new generation of consumers? Was it always thus? What cultural function does Goth(ic) style possess? And how has this evolved from the Enlightenment to the neoliberal present?

This one-day conference will present 20-minute talks on all aspects of Gothic style.

Tickets are £11.04 and available on eventbrite.
