My name is Elizabeth Clark, and I am a master’s candidate in the Communication, Culture, and Technology department at Georgetown University. This livejournal account is part of my master's thesis research.
The focus of my thesis is: recent film and television portrayals of female werewolves. I am analyzing these portrayals in terms of gender, monstrosity, and transgressive bodies. I am interested in understanding fan responses to these characters and their narratives.
I chose livejournal to host this part of my research because it is designed to foster community and group discussion!
