Haunted Humanity: Workshop by The Monster Network
In light of so-called migratory challenges and increasing nationalism in the Nordic countries, this workshop critically engages with ongoing debates about exclusion and inclusion through the ideas surrounding monsters, ghosts and haunting. The workshop explores not only important historical contexts for how monsters emerged as justifications for discrimination and violence, but also the monstrous Others as figures that haunt the foundations of the very idea of humanity, and what it means to be human today.
