American Gothic for Students is a website dedicated to showing connections among authors of American Gothic Literature, with an emphasis on authors who are not often included in high school curricula. The site, which is made on Scalar, has some background information on Gothic literature and the way authors of different identities fit into it, as well as information about specific authors in the form of author pages. Each author has a page that includes links to full texts of their Gothic works, biographical information, and brief analyses of some recurring characteristics of their works. The site also connects authors based on shared themes and includes a visual representation of those connections in the form of a network web made on Onodo. The site will continue to expand with more author pages being added throughout the year.
