Non-Western Gothic

How do authors writing in non western traditions subvert the tenants of a genre that has cast them as the villains to explore their own stories of fear, dread, mystery and corruption? Who becomes the “other” or “doppelganger” in a story written by the feared “doppelgangers” themselves? This panel will explore how BIPOC writers have redefined Gothic literature and centered themselves in a genre is deeply grounded in the concept of white supremacy.
