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).

VOK 612: LOTR ReRead Reunion – Counterfactual History


Book Cover

Many of us are comfort-reading LOTR right now, so Bina007 decided to gather up the Vassals who hosted the LOTR re-read back in 2013 to discuss what would have happened if Faramir had attended the Council of Elrond rather than Boromir; if Sauron had never found the Ring; if Theoden hadn’t helped Gondor; what if Sauron won; and what if Saruman never went bad.

Thanks to Matt’s Air Con and Paul playing LOTR online this isn’t the cleanest of audio files but we thought The Listener would still like to hear OG Vassals Shellfish, Nadia and EastTexasDirewolf back on the airwaves.  Quotidian hosts include Matt/Varley, Bina, Brett/Whiteraven, Adam/Drownedsnow and Paul/SerDinnerRoll.
