Abstract

Monster Talk: A Virtual Roundtable with Mark Bould, Liv Bugge, Surekha Davies, Margrit Shildrick and Jeffrey Weinstock Edited by Donna McCormack 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. Donna McCormack Post One The monster has historically been a phenomenon of intrigue, wonder and ostracisation. It is conceptualised as the outsider, the one who does not belong, often on a physical level, while also being theorised as the very boundary between self and other, inside and outside, and the normal and the abnormal. Yet, in many ways the monster and monstrous bodies are dominating our socio-political and cultural worlds.
