OpenCampus Tea-Time Talk: Discussing Dolls: Horror and the Human Double

UNIVERSITY OF HULL, Hull, HU6 74X

8 Feb 2018

Speaker: Sandra Mills, PhD candidate in English Literature, University of Hull.

This talk focuses upon literary and visual narratives which portray the doll, often concurrently, as a living entity and lifeless artefact, part human, part object. It examines how this childhood relic has found itself increasingly at home in the horror genre by tracing its evolution from historic curiosity to present spectacle.

For many this is the stuff of childhood nightmares, lifeless bodies now animate, inducing fear and characterising horror.
