About this product
- DescriptionThe fear of parasites, with their power to invade, infest, and transform the self, writhes and wriggles through cultures and religions across globe, reflecting a human revulsion of being invaded and consumed by internal and external forces. This book gathers together research from diverse disciplines, including anthropology, and religious studies.
- Author BiographyBrenda Gardenour holds a PhD in medieval history from Boston University and is currently Assistant Professor of History at the Saint Louis College of Pharmacy. She has been a Fulbright scholar in Madrid, an Evelyn Nation research fellow at the Huntington Library in California, and an NEH fellow at the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine in London. Her current research examines the use and abuse of Aristotelian discourse in the medieval world and its continued influence on the deeper structures of modern mentalites, particularly those linked with the horror genre. Misha Tadd is a PhD candidate at Boston University specializing in Early Daoism. He received a Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation Doctoral Fellowship for his work on Heshanggong zhu, a little-studied, but seminal, Daodejing commentary.
