Body Horror: Transformations

Body Horror: Transformations


The body. My body. This thing which is with me all day, every day, from my birth to my death. This flesh which is me. My intimate life-long friend.

Welcome to the Body Horror Project. This inter- and multi-disciplinary research and  publications project will explore all aspects of human corporeality and the being of, and in, our flesh.

The project will critically engage with a number of core themes:

  • Biological horror. Organic horror
  • Change and transformation
  • Disease. Infection, contagion, invasion, virus, the parasite
  • Violence, brutality, torture
