Der vorliegende Band versammelt Studien sowie grundlegende Beiträge unterschiedlicher Disziplinen, um den Spuren von Körper und Raum-Relationen nachzugehen. Die Annahme, dass Körper und Räume in einer permanenten wie ursprünglichen Beziehung zueinander stehen, wird in verschiedensten Disziplinen und Denkmustern immer wieder neu kontrovers diskutiert und auf ihre Evidenz und Tatsächlichkeit hin geprüft. Dieser Aktualität und Brisanz des Themenkomplexes gilt es sich interdisziplinär anzunähern. Dabei werden nicht nur auf theoretisch-systematischer, philosophischer Ebene Körper und Raum-Relationen wie Nicht-Relationen verhandelt, sondern auch konkrete und virtuelle Räume nach anthropologischen Maßstäben befragt. Der anthropologische Ansatz soll demnach den epistemologischen Rahmen dieses Bandes bilden.

"The Dread of Difference is a classic. Few film studies texts have been so widely read and so influential. It's rarely on the shelf at my university library, so continuously does it circulate. Now this new edition expands the already comprehensive coverage of gender in the horror film with new essays on recent developments such as the Hostel series and torture porn. Informative and enlightening, this updated classic is an essential reference for fans and students of horror movies."—Stephen Prince, editor of The Horror Film and author of Digital Visual Effects in Cinema: The Seduction of Reality "An impressive array of distinguished scholars . . . gazes deeply into the darkness and then forms a Dionysian chorus reaffirming that sexuality and the monstrous are indeed mated in many horror films."—Choice "An extremely useful introduction to recent thinking about gender issues within this genre."—Film Theory

JACK PIERCE - THE MAN BEHIND THE MONSTERS chronicles the career exploits of Universal's classic monster creator, Jack Pierce, who was with the studio during their horror heyday of 1928-1947. After freelancing in Hollywood's earliest days as an actor, stuntman and assistant director, Pierce flourished in makeup in the 1910s and 1920s, first making himself into any variety of movie extras called for on fledgling studio lots. Then, from 1930-1947, Pierce created some of cinema history's most distinguishable icons of fright, including Frankenstein's Monster, The Mummy, The Bride of Frankenstein, Ygor, The Wolf Man, and The Phantom of the Opera among his many classic creations. Contained in this unique publication are detailed text and photos from every significant film of Pierce's career, spanning the mid-1910s to the mid-1960s.
