Monsters, politics, resistance. A Monster Network update

During the Why Monster Studies Now? symposium in Oslo in October, the steering committee of The Monster Network met and discussed our plans for the future. In the midst of Brexit, the refugee crisis, the financial crisis, the war on terror, the rising nationalism across countries, the war in Syria, the attack on women’s right to abortion in Poland and many more terrible things that are currently going on around the globe, we decided that our future projects should somehow engage with the subject of politics, monsters and resistance. After the American presidential election, this decision stands stronger than ever.

As a network, we want to explore and implement the kind of ethical work and resistance monster theory has to offer, and we want to do so as collectively as possible. We therefore hope to be able to get back to you all with more information shortly and invite you to some exciting, subversive things indeed.
