A facilitated round table discussion and live Q&A between an academic film supervisor (Dr Victoria McCollum) and her Monster Scholar Doctoral Candidates (John Kavanagh, Nicole Hamilton, Gerard Gibson and Tasha Curry) about how the monster functions, their historical uses and the social and cultural purposes of the monster. This event invites the audience to reconsider how horror and the occult are viewed, inviting recognition of the important historic social and cultural role these forces have exerted on human history and recognising their influence for good and ill, to better navigate the paths before us. We also explore the pedagogical power of the monstrous and how innovative teaching strategies that use our cultural fascination with monsters can enhance learning.
