Penelope Holdaway on “Longing to Remember, Dying to Forget: Memory and Monstrosity” #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
Holdaway: is the monstrous located in the physical? Cohen’s 7 theses may offer a broader way to look at the monstrous #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Holdaway: more emphasis on cultural definitions of the monstrous - Túrin’s otherness is a cultural otherness, where does that cross into the monstrous? #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Holdaway: Túrin is monstrous within the Elves but not monstrous enough among the Outlaws - always othered. #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Holdaway: Túrin’s weakness is that he can’t let go of the past - he’s most at peace with Nienor because he has no memory of her as a sister. Is memory a curse? #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Holdaway: Wolverine as a point of comparison with #Tolkien’s Túrin. Wolverine is a mutant with no culture or morality - he fulfils more of Cohen’s theses about the “monstrous”. #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Holdaway: The peaceful part of Wolverine’s past ends when his past life starts to emerge - memory as a curse again? #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Holdaway: the monsters are those with distorted memories - those who remember more, less, or differently to others. #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
