📒Werewolves And Other Shapeshifters In Popular Culture ✍ Kimberley McMahon-Coleman
📝Werewolves and Other Shapeshifters in Popular Culture Book Synopsis : In recent years, shapeshifting characters in literature, film and television have been on the rise. This has followed the increased use of such characters as metaphors, with novelists and critics identifying specific meanings and topics behind them. This book aims to unravel the shapeshifting trope. Rather than pursue a case-based study, the works are grouped around specific themes—adolescence, gender, sexuality, race, disability, addiction, and spirituality—that are explored through the metaphor of shapeshifting. Because of the transformative possibilities of this metaphor and its flexibility, the shapeshifter has the potential to change how we see our world. With coverage of iconic fantasy texts and a focus on current works, the book engages with the shapeshifting figure in popular culture from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

📝Werewolves Wolves and the Gothic Book Synopsis : Wolves lope across Gothic imagination. Signs of a pure animality opposed to humanity, in the figure of the werewolf they become liminal creatures that move between the human and the animal. Werewolves function as a site for exploring complex anxieties of difference – of gender, class, race, space, nation or sexuality – but the imaginative and ideological uses of wolves also reflect back on the lives of material animals, long persecuted in their declining habitats across the world. Werewolves therefore raise unsettling questions about the intersection of the real and the imaginary, the instability of human identities and the worldliness and political weight of the Gothic. This is the first volume concerned with the appearance of werewolves and wolves in literary and cultural texts from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Drawing on representations of werewolves and wolves in literature, film, television and visual culture, the essays investigate the key texts of the lycanthropic canon alongside lesser-known works from the 1890s to the present. The result is an innovative study that is both theoretically aware and historically nuanced, featuring an international list of established and emerging scholars based in Britain, Europe, North America and Australia.

📝The Gay Guy s Guide to Werewolves and Other Man Beasts Book Synopsis : This is a book about werewolves and other shapeshifters written from the perspective of a gay, Pagan male.

Wherever possible links between werewolves and homosexuality are made. Themes include gender variant deities and heroes with wolf/werewolf associations; homosexual initiations and shapeshifting practices among ancient all-male warrior bands; gender-shifting shapeshifters; shamans who changed both shape and gender; animal-human hybrids; and related gay and bi positive myths.
