Historicizing Slashers

PCA/ACA National Conference

April 15-18, 2020

Philadelphia, PA, USA

On the eve of Friday the 13th celebrating its 40th anniversary, the concept of the “slasher” and the “slasher film” remains a topic of debate and discourse among horror scholars and fear film aficionados.

Though theorized and analyzed consistently for the past 30 years, slasher films possess a complex history, one that contains controversy (such as graphic violence, misogyny and the promotion of seemingly socially conservative “morals”), a labyrinthine origin and genealogy as well as alternating and shifting periods of popularity.

Posthuman Praxis of ‘human’

 

In posthuman theory we do have an obligation, but it is never what we think it is, because the ethical event cannot be known in advance… Posthuman Ethics shows we cannot ‘do’ ethics, and evaluate whether something was as ethical or not as we would hope.
