In The Monster as War Machine, European monster tradition intersects with American mass-media production and new philosophical approaches to examine topics of community, political power, alternative representations of race and gender, identity, hybridity, political agency, and collective subjectivity. In this book, cultural theory, close readings of literary texts, and interpretations of visual materials come together, covering a wide and diversified cultural territory.
Some of the authors included in this study are Agamben, Badiou, Baudrillard, Deleuze, Esposito, Foucault, Freud, Haraway, Hardt, Kristeva, Marx, Negri, and Zižek, whose works illuminate the disruptive and at times emancipatory role of monstrosity as a representation of excess, instinct, evil, truth, and rebelliousness.
This book is an important resource for those studying film, contemporary literature, and popular culture.
This book is in the Cambria Latin American Literatures and Cultures Series headed by Román de la Campa, the Edwin B. and Lenore R. Williams Professor of Romance Languages at the University of Pennsylvania.
