"Villain" 5/6/11

updated: 
Thursday, March 3, 2011 - 10:54pm
Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies

This issue of the Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies seeks to explore the political, social, and cultural significations of "evil" (and its corollary: the "good") via a critical analysis of the fluid, mutable figure of the "villain," aiming to examine its construction and its existence in the world.

A few possible perspectives for the study of the villain are:
The villain as the "natural" being
The villain as the sacrificial other
The villain as a figure that defies representation
The villain as hero
The villain as non-existent
The villain as a personification of evil
The villain as Doppelganger
