Summer is slowly coming to an end, and the creatures that live in the cold and the dark are stirring. This of course includes The Monster Network and the Promises of Monsters website!
We’ve been scheming and would like to let you in on some of our plans, so below you’ll find our very first newsletter – or you can download Newsletter #1 2016 The Monster Network as a pdf. If you’d like this newsletter send directly to your inbox, let us know by contacting us at promisesofmonsters [at] gmail [dot] com.
A correction: when we first sent out the newsletter, we stated that the deadline for abstracts for the special issue ‘Monstrous Encounters: Nordic Perspectives on Monsters and the Monstrous‘ was the 31st of September. The correct date is the 1st of September 2016.

The Monster Network Newsletter #1 2016
Dear Monster friends,
Welcome to The Monster Network and our first newsletter! We might have been a tad quiet since the conference, but we have not been hibernating, not at all: We have been cultivating, gathering and weaving more monstrousness!
OUR TOP NEWS:
2) Promises of Monsters conference special issue: We are now preparing a special issue of Somatechnics to be published in 2019. This journal is particularly concerned with the interconnections between technology and embodiment. Considering the timeframe, we will get back to you asap after the summer with more information about extended deadlines and practical stuff.
Lastly, a question for all of you: we have some great photos of people (aka you guys) from the conference that we would like to post on our website. Does anyone object to having your picture on our site? If you have any objections, please let us know before the end of this week, Friday 8 July. Thanks!
Feel free to circulate this newsletter to monster friends and colleagues. Contact us at promisesofmonsters [at] gmail [dot] com if you have news, tips, tricks or treats, or if you do not wish to receive the newsletter in the future.
