My research project is entitled NeoGothic Queer in Contemporary LatinAsian Literature. The project aims to develop and investigate how a new neogothic genrehybrid is forming across contemporary Latin American and East Asian literature, with an interest in the link between intimacy and climate through alienating topoi. The hybrid challenges both physical boundaries of the world as well as boundaries of traditional literary genre conventions such as magical realism, gothicism, horror, and the fantastic, all in response to a world in crisis. The project is thus both a development of the planetary comparative method and an investigation of new genrehybrid movements.
