Review: Evangelical Gothic: The English Novel and the Religious War on Virtue from Wesley to “Dracula.”, by Christopher Herbert
Mimi Winick is an Instructor in the Department of English at Virginia Commonwealth University. She is currently serving as a Visiting Lecturer in Women’s Studies and Religion and Society and as a Research Associate in the Women’s Studies in Religion Program at Harvard Divinity School, Harvard University. Her essays have appeared in Modernism/modernity (2015), Studies in Walter Pater and Aestheticism (2018), and Nineteenth-Century Literature (2018). She is now working on a book manuscript provisionally titled “Ecstatic Inquiry,” on the intersections of new religious movements, fantastic fiction, and the history of the modern humanities in nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Britain. Another book project explores how authors marked as “primitive” by Victorian anthropology reworked Victorian theories of race and religion to present putatively backward categories as essential to a utopic future.
