Course Description

This course explores the origins, representations and adaptations of one of Western culture’s most enduring figures for monstrosity and mystery: the werewolf. From Ovid’s Lycaon to Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Oz, taking in the berserkr of Icelandic saga, the outcast of folklore, the Gothic staple, the pulp fiction brute, and the shape-shifter of film and TV, we will examine what this hybrid figure represents in different periods and genres, and explore our perennial fascination with a very political animal.
