Contrary to what rationalism preached, monsters did not disappear with the arrival of the capitalism. They still exist and share our world. At any given historical moment, monsters represent either deviations or deformations of a preconceived idea of the normal. It is within this context that the "Other", the one that deviates from the status quo, has been perceived as threatening and therefore monstrous. The monster represents humanity's anxiety and fear of what escapes fixed meaning or is not completely understandable or that which is different. Monstrous Deviations brings together an international group of collaborators who are dedicated to rigorously exploring the (re)presentation of monstrosity and the monster through a multi- and inter-disciplinary approach thereby seeking to broaden our understanding of the subject. It is the intention of the collaborators of this edited volume to bring discussions of monsters and the monstrous to the fore by unmasking racial, cultural and social paradigms hidden behind the concept of the 'Other' as both an individual and/or group of people.
