**ABSTRACTS MUST BE RECIEVED BY SEPTEMBER 30TH**

Landscapes, scenery, architecture, and locations are integral to the study of horror in fiction-- and yet one might point out that they rarely receive as much emphasis or attention as monsters that live within them. This panel is for these forgotten landscapes of horror and "weird" fiction--a place to observe and recognize the importance or triteness of the haunted house trope, the mysterious ineffability of Lovecraftian underwater temples, or the aged spirituality of Dracula's castle. This panel seeks to turn the paradigm of antagonist-focused readings of texts on its head, and start understanding place and location itself as a critical aspect of the inculcation of horror. By doing so, this panel likewise hopes to gain new tools for better understanding the genre.
