Description

“The monstrous” has often been defined as that which lies outside of socially accepted identity and categories. In the Iberian world, including and beyond the Middle Ages, constructing beings as monstrous often depended on the intersection of a variety of identity categories, including those related to gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, and religion. This session aims to bring together scholars working in different disciplines and on different periods to shed light on the evolving borders among beings, human and monstrous, in the Iberian world.
