My name is Léna Remy-Kovach. I am a Ph.D. Student in North American Indigenous Literatures at the Albert-Ludwigs University of Freiburg, in Germany. I study the notions of healing and (re)conciliation in contemporary Horror and Gothic Indigenous novels. My current projects include the imagery of hunger and cannibalism in contemporary Native horror literature, the commodification of Native American monsters in Horror television series, and the use of traditional Euro-American creatures and tropes in modern Horror by Indigenous writers from Turtle Island.

Brittany Roberts earned her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from University of California, Riverside. Her work focuses on 20th- and 21st-century Russian and Anglophone literature and cinema, particularly speculative fiction and the environmental humanities. She is currently preparing her first book, which undertakes a comparative analysis of Russian and Anglophone horror literature and cinema focusing on depictions of humans, animals, the environment, and the ecological and metaphysical dynamics that link them. Brittany has published articles and chapters in The Irish Journal of Gothic and Horror Studies, The Spaces and Places of Horror, Plants in Science Fiction: Speculative Vegetation, and the forthcoming collection Fear and Nature: Ecohorror Studies in the Anthropocene. She is especially interested in how horror and other speculative fiction genres disrupt the human-nonhuman binary and in how speculative fiction reconsiders, challenges, and reconceives of our relations with other species.
