Aims and Scope
Horror Studies is a journal devoted to the study of horror. This journal will publish in all fields of the humanities, provided the scholarship deals centrally with a work or works generally connected to horror. While we anticipate that fields traditionally concerned with horror such as film studies and literary studies will inform the bulk of the journal's articles, we also intend to solicit and cultivate study in allied fields such as art history, musicology, theatre history, and dance history. The goal of the journal will be to promote excellence in the scholarly study of horror in expressive culture, and interaction between scholars interested in the study of horror from diverse disciplines.

Horror Studies will appear twice per year, in each spring and autumn. Each issue will contain articles on varied topics. On occasion Horror Studies will also offer thematically unified issues featuring guest editors and articles concentrated on a single topic, individual, or body of work. Reviews of books, DVDs, and other media that seeks to expand what we know about horror will also appear.

Call for Papers
Horror Studies is a peer-reviewed academic journal devoted to the rigorous study of the aesthetics of horror in all of its cultural and historical forms, from film and literature, music and dance, to fine art, photography and beyond. Seeking to advance the academic study of horror in theoretically and historically informed ways, Horror Studies is devoted to publishing high-quality articles and reviews relevant to its focus. With a strong commitment to interdisciplinarity, Horror Studies seeks to foster fruitful dialogue on horror between a wide range of different critical and scholarly traditions.

Rather than abstracts, the editors request that authors submit completed manuscripts using Harvard Style citations.
