In this event, sponsored by the UST Libraries, English professor Dr. Alexis Easley and M.A. in English alum Shannon Scott will read selections from their recently published anthology, Terrifying Transformations: An Anthology of Victorian Werewolf Fiction. This anthology features vividly written stories taken from the pages of rare nineteenth-century periodicals. In some stories, werewolves are a violent and terrifying emanations of the "beast within," and in others they are benevolent creatures who have been unfairly marginalized by mainstream society. Whether male or female, demonic or misunderstood, werewolves tell us a great deal about our own anxieties and fears, both past and present.
