We are the Dark Arts Journal and we exist to publish and promote upcoming and emerging voices in the field of Gothic Studies.
The journal operates on open access policies and has its own peer review process. Updates are published twice a year and previous editions are available for download in pdf format.
The DAJ is part of the Dark Arts Network, a tool for allowing exciting new scholars to gain experience, gain connections and contribute to their field. The Dark Arts Journal is published by the Dark Arts Network in Manchester, UK with the support of the Manchester Centre for Gothic Studies, part of Manchester Metropolitan University as well as Sheffield University’s Centre for the History of the Gothic.
