Speaking of Monsters is no scary story. The new book from UF Law’s Caroline Picart (3L), who is also editor-in-chief of the Florida Journal of International Law, takes on the world of monsters and shows the reader the only monsters are here. Speaking of Monsters: A Teratological Anthology, Picart and co-editor John Browning bring together a collection of teratologies, stories of abnormalities and deformations, in redefining what is means to be normal in a monstrous world. This book is far from Picart’s first monster mash. She’s written extensively on the ghoulish and ghastly before in books that include Remaking the Frankenstein Myth on Film: Between Laughter and HorrorMonsters in and Among Us: Towards a Gothic Criminology; and Draculas, Vampires and Other Undead Forms: Essays on Gender, Race and Culture, which she also joined forces with Browning to edit. Speaking of Monsters is set to be published by Palgrave-Macmillan this summer.
