Abstract


The connections between race, racial difference, and an anxiety about the alien Other are, to a large extent, inseparable from the origins and evolution of the Gothic genre. Beginning in the eighteenth century and up to the present, the real world of colonial and postcolonial experience finds significant links in the discourse of race in Gothic texts (see imperial gothic; postcolonial gothic).
