"Monstrous Hunger"

Our readings will focus on the figure of the monster, and specifically the monster that eats human flesh. We will discuss the use of the monstrous figure in historical and contemporary texts, as well as its broader implications in society.

Fair Warning: as you might expect from the topic, some of our readings will be on the gory side. Students who are sensitive to such things may wish to consider a different section.

Readings may include: Neil Gaiman Kathe Koja H. P. Lovecraft Judith Halberstam H. L. Malchow
