Megen de Bruin-Molé and Liz Gloyn talk about monsters and modernity as they launch their new books at The Second Shelf

About this Event

This November, The Second Shelf welcomes Megen de Bruin-Molé and Liz Gloyn to talk about monsters and modernity as they launch their new books. In Gothic Remixed: Monster Mashups and Frankenfictions in 21st-Century Culture, Megen looks at what the current popularity of the ‘monster mash’ can reveal about our assumptions regarding originality, monstrosity, authorship, and historiography; Tracking Classical Monsters in Popular Culture takes Liz on a journey around the contemporary world to explore why the monsters of ancient myth continue to survive in our world. Liz and Megen will read extracts from their books before a short discussion around the continuing power and meaning of monsters.

Megen de Bruin-Molé (@MegenJM) is a media studies scholar and university lecturer working in the UK. She specialises in adaptation, (neo-)Victorian fiction, popular feminism, and contemporary remix culture, and has published a number of open-access articles and reviews in these areas.
