Horror Studies

Horror Studies is the first series ever exclusively dedicated to the study of the genre in all its various manifestations. The new series aims to explore the steady and ever-growing interest in Horror – from fiction to cinema and television, magazines to comics, and stretching to other forms of narrative texts such as video games or music. Horror Studies aims to raise the profile of Horror in the process of institutionalising its academic study by providing a publishing home for cutting-edge academic writing, and by presenting introductions to key periods, figures and texts in the field. As an exciting new venture within UWP’s established Cultural Studies and Literary Criticism programme, Horror Studies will expand the field of interest in the dark, the macabre and the scary in both innovative and student-friendly approaches.
