Marxism and Monsters
by Thom Kiraly
Just a quick one.
By discussing all kinds of weird shit today i remembered a talk that was sent to me a couple of years ago given by China Miéville about how one, as a marxist, can look at and use monsters in literature and film. In this talk he puts monsters in their historical and social context, while keeping the whole thing low on heavy theory. Even if some of the stuff in it are no-brainers it’s still a nice and entertaining 40 min listen and if you’re at all interested you can get it by right-clicking here and selecting “Save as”. But I’m guessing you already knew that.
I promise an update somewhat related to this topic in the near future…
