Monster talk: A virtual roundtable with Mark Bould, Liv Bugge, Surekha Davies, Margrit Shildrick and Jeffrey Weinstock

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This roundtable brings together scholars and artists working with the monster and the monstrous. It took place between December 2017 and June 2018 via email. Participants responded to an initial email question from me, and then to each other’s responses, along with framing questions from me. The ‘temporality, polyvocality, and virtual space of this roundtable’ (Dinshaw et al. 2007: 177) evokes this roundtable’s indebtedness to scholars in the fields of queer and critical ethnic studies, as well as bringing to the fore the monstrous in its unstable and individually collective form. I am grateful to the invitees who came to the table and shared their time and thoughts.
