Absent Presences is a two day conference taking place on the 27th and 28th of June, inspired by current research being produced by Gothic researchers both with Manchester Metropolitan University and beyond.

The conference focuses on the neglected aspects of Gothic studies, from representation of marginalised groups both in text and in authorship, to underexplored media types such as new media and online video.
The conference aims to expand the ‘Gothic canon’ beyond the traditional texts and perspectives, and aims to establish a new, wider definition of what can be considered Gothic.
