Screen and Cultural Studies and the School of Culture and Communication at The University of Melbourne present this 2-day conference, Feasting on Hannibal: An Interdisciplinary Conference.
This delectable conference brings together scholars and artists from diverse disciplinary backgrounds to consider Hannibal Lecter's persistent cultural significance as a figure of cultivated monstrosity. Inspired by the recent re-emergence of Hannibal and his surrounding mythology in television, this conference explores how Hannibal Lecter continues to redefine notions of the monstrous. This conference aims to facilitate an understanding of how the continually evolving, mutating, and adapting figure of Hannibal Lecter speaks so pertinently to our own culture.
The conference runs from Tuesday 29 November to Wednesday 30 November 2016, with a preceding graduate masterclass on Monday 28 November 2016.
