Rethinking the Postmodern Monster

This panel seeks papers on theories of monstrosity. How does monstrosity occlude or benefit theories of genre/ gender/ nation? How do theories of monstrosity deal with the post-human/ post-national? How can monster theory be circumscribed as a unique ontology? This panel also seeks papers that apply monster theories in unique ways.

Literary Dress: Fashioning the Fictional Self

Fashion, fabricate, artifice, make-up: all these terms have a double valence. Each term in noun form denotes a prosthetic application of something foreign atop something natural (usually a human body) with the intention of concealing or enhancing the natural item beneath. Each term in verb form, though, carries a connotation of constitution and creation: a sense of literal "becoming," or even investiture. In some way, these terms gesture towards the ephemeral, frivolous, and the temporary AND towards a sense of ontological making.
