June Oh is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of English at Michigan State University. Her research interests lie in age studies, 18th-century British literature, medical humanities, gender and sexuality, and disability studies. Her work particularly focuses on the relationship between the aging mind and body and how the science engages with the notion of growing old.  She is currently working on a DH project, “Mapping of Monsters in Literature”, in which she uses ArcGIS to investigate how the gender of a monster affects its spatial representation.

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.

I’m an Independent Scholar specialising in British popular culture with a particular focus on class, gender and style in cinema and popular music. My AHRC funded PhD, ‘Men, Manors and Monsters: The Hoodie Horror and the Cinema of Alterity’ argues British cinematic realism in the twenty-first century is forged in a neoliberal discourse of class, with its form articulated by aesthetics traditionally associated with the gothic. My current research interests are stardom, performance and class in British cinema, and cultural and online practices involved in Paul Weller fandom.

MemberTeresa Marie Hooper

I teach and study the entire Medieval and Early Renaissance periods, but I specialize in Early Medieval Literature with a focus in Early Medieval England, medieval manuscripts, and a little Late Antiquity for good measure. My areas of interest for teaching and research purposes include (but often wander outside of): Early English codicology; Old English language and literature; memory studies; LA/medieval cultural geography, cosmography, and travel narratives; LA, medieval, and Early Modern ethnography and exploration; early Latin saint’s lives; Latin texts in English translation; monsters and teratology; Chaucerian dream poems; Renaissance poetry; and Ancient to modern drama. My current research interests include the textual and codicological history of the Beowulf-Manuscript (London, BL Cotton Vitellius A.xv, part 2), the earliest Latin St. Christopher legend, and the OE and Latin versions of Orosius’ History against the Pagans.
