Interdisciplinary conference on female werewolves and shapeshifters
02 Jun 2010
On 9/10 September at The University of Manchester
Female Werewolves, Shapeshifters and Other Horrors in Art, Literature and Culture
Keynote Speaker: Professor Peter Hutchings (Northumbria University)
The figure of the werewolf has haunted art, literature and culture for millennia. While not as common as their male counterparts, female werewolves appear in a variety of texts, of different genres and different cultures. From transcripts of witchcraft trials to Buffy, the female werewolf and her shapeshifting sisters continue to challenge, excite and entertain.
This conference will explore representations and cultural meanings of female werewolves and other female shapeshifters, and the perennial fascination of these creatures.
