On Tuesday October 10th at 7pm Margaret Meehan presents “Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde,” a talk on how her work addresses monstrosity as a kind of otherness that goes beyond dualities and instead exists in shades of gray, a slippage between the categories that society defines us by and an acknowledgement of the monster that lives within us. In this clear-eyed and nuanced consideration of the intersections of myths, monsters, and miracles, Meehan examines how we decide whom we protect and whom we should be protected from by looking at notions of gender, vintage horror, and our own blood-stained American history.
