About this item

Rather than trying to correct representations of migrants, refugees, and other Others as barbarians, savages, and monsters, scholars of literature, drama, and media interrogate hegemonic power's instrumentalization of these figures. In particular, they explore how these figures can stray from their duty to legitimize hegemony and become attractive avenues of transgression for the marginalized within the metropole itself. They cover feared and longed for barbarian invasions in contemporary politics and culture; savages and monsters old, new, and refurbished: canons recast in literature and film; and strange bedfellows: queering barbarians, barbarizing self-identity, playing holocaust.
