Campus Activity: Making Monsters: Figures of Monstrosity in Lit., Culture, and Identity


April 6, 2019    
10:00 am-11:15 am

English Graduate Student Association Annual Conference 

What makes a monster? Scholars have long written that monstrosity is the grotesque offspring of anxiety. Where our fears lie, there our monsters rise. While conventional monsters are still abound, they have also taken on new shapes, reflecting old, new and ever-changing fears and anxieties in our world. This conference seeks to interrogate the figure of the monster and the concept of monstrosity.
