I mentioned in my last post that I had a brief to write this piece and take part in the Big Conversation. It had to be short and be accessible to scholars in all disciplines and provide evidence for my hypothesis. The idea is that a snapshot of your research will be used to start a wider conversation and generate debate. My piece is called ‘Why We Should Welcome the Return of Old Stinker the English Werewolf’ Please do comment and share this story from their site (even if you disagree) as that is the whole point and I will respond to any posts however critical. I am realising that it is very tricky to present some of these ideas outside of gothic studies and literature which deals with representation but I am glad I tried and will endeavour to keep responding (even when I don’t understand the comment). If you are interested in the story please respond on the conversation site from the link to the story above so that they can track the response! This is proving to be a very interesting exercise!
