For the occasion of &NOW 2018, we’re re-staging variations of our favorite Talks from the past four years. Dao Ngyuen’s “Bibliologarrhythmia: new discoveries in an ongoing investigation of intra-textuality” investigates the connection between the physical and the textual. Jessica Anne’s lecture “On Mothering” takes a multifaceted look at the history of childbirth, ranging from examples of bad mothering (Mommie Dearest) to questioning the cult of the family. Rebecca Nakaba drew from her B-Movie abstracts featured in the Meekling Review to discuss her B-Movie research, addressing questions such as: do swamp habitats alter a monster’s genetic makeup, thereby making it even more monstrous?
