The monster is us: Jordan Peele's Get Out exposes society's horrors
As a horror film, Jordan Peele's 2017 film Get Out certainly broke new ground. Yet, the film is firmly rooted in what Dawn Keetley refers to as "...the longstanding tradition of the political horror film" which is "...driven by very human monsters." Keetley, Professor and Chair of the Department of English at Lehigh University, edited a recently-published collection of sixteen essays about the critically-acclaimed film, the first scholarly publication to examine the film.

More than 'Just Another City'
This book is an inquiry into the space between the slowness of architecture and the speed of the city, between the skyline and the underground. It is a critical mapping of islands as territories of resistance. It explores the histories, identities and places that are created in tandem with urban development. It endeavors to make visible the culture of resistance and architecture's complicit role in these contestations. It is about urban resilience. It is about Hong Kong, where uncertainty is status quo.
