Let's take part together in The Black Vampire and Other Creations: Gothic Visions of New World and exchange afterwards !

Talks, a virtual tour, and flash fiction competition on Gothic dreams of new worlds. We will explore Gothic dreams of new worlds and the creatures that inhabit them, notably Mary Shelley’s plague world, John Polidori’s vampire, and the ghosts of WW1. Through a virtual tour, attendees will visit the scene of Mary and Percy Shelley’s courtship and Polidori’s resting place, and contemplate Gothic worlds via presentations and performances by Marcus Sedgwick (novelist), Dr Karl Bell (historian), Dr Sam George (vampire expert), and Dr Bill Hughes (Gothic scholar).
