In preparation for our panel at GeekGirlCon – (Not So) Strange Appetites: Women and the Horror Fandom – here’s a bit of reading for you. What better way to spend your lunch break than immersing yourself in, say, an analysis of puberty as represented in horror films?
- The Season of the Witch: Why teenage girls are so dang scary by Sady Doyle
- On Consuming Media Responsibly: Video games, horror movies and Anita Sarkeesian by Jenn Frank
- Some excellent reading rounded up by our co-panelist Ashlee of Graveyard Shift Sisters
- If you have access to JSTOR, there are some good articles referenced here
- Interview with Kier-la Janisse, author of House of Psychotic Women
- Have you been following the Women in Horror Month blog? You are now.
Don’t feel like digging through our archives? We’ve made it easy for you by gathering some of our favorite horror posts in one place:
- Reviews from The Psyche of the Revenge Film series
- The Horror Movie Dream Team
- The Descent: A horror movie that broke the Bechdel test
- “Death Comes in Many Strange Packages”: Tales from the Hood as a Socially Conscious Horror Film
- Our favorite horror movies
We’re very excited to welcome Adrienne Fox of Watch Play Read as an addition to our panel. She’s shared three of her favorite horror comic book titles:
- Nailbiter by Joshua Williamson (see Jeff’s review of the 1st issue)
- Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Solider and the Vampire by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden
- Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight by Alex de Campi – Adults only! (Jeff’s review of #1 here as well)
We hope you can make it to our panel on Saturday, October 11 at 6pm! GeekGirlCon‘s official hashtag for the convention is #GGC14 and the tag for our panel is #NotSoStrange.
