VoK 649: A Seminar of Ice and Fire (Part 3) – Monsters


In the third installment of A Seminar of Ice and Fire—the VoK series that examines A Song of Ice and Fire through various theoretical texts—the Vassals take on Jeffrey Jerome Cohen’s essay “Monster Culture (Seven Theses).”

We talk about what makes a monster, what monsters we see (or don’t see) in a Song of Ice and Fire, and what particular types of monsters might suggest about the culture that created them.

Hosts:
Sara/DrBlood
Ben/KingJucio
Varley
Peter/Shellfish
Wilson/The Wandering Prophet
Patrick/Ser Patrick the Tall

Credits:
Edited by Shellfish

A PDF of the Cohen reading is available here. For more reading on some of the other topics mentioned in the episode, you can start with Bauman, Zygmunt, Community: Seeking Safety in an Insecure World (2000); and Tajfel, H., “The achievement of inter-group differentiation” (1978).
