Abstract

The persistent popularity of the detective narrative, new obsessions with psychological and supernatural disturbances, as well as the resurgence of older narratives of mystery or the Gothic all constitute a vast proportion of contemporary film and television productions. New ways of watching film and television have also seen a reinvigoration of this ‘most domestic of media’. But what does this ‘domesticity’ of genre and media look like ‘Down Under’ in the twenty-first century? This collection traces representations of the Gothic on both the small and large screens in Australia and New Zealand in the twenty-first century. In doing so, it attends to the development and mutation of the Gothic in these post- or neo-colonial contexts, concentrating on the generic innovations of this temporal and geographical focus.
