Drawing on a Bakhtin like conception of ‘grotesque realism’ this essay analyses the representation of the disorderly woman and the ways in which cosmetics and their perceived misuses become a literal and metaphorical device in the construction of the female face of evil on film.
Publisher's text about this book:
The papers collected in this volume are expanded from papers given at the 6th Global Conference on Evil and Human Wickedness, which took place in March 2005. The chapters here represent the diversity and interdisciplinary nature of the conference itself covering topics such as historical and theological concepts of evil, media representations of evil, contemporary debates surrounding the Bosnia war and woman perpetrators in Birkenau, and the construction of the Other as evil in the face of the continuing hysteria over AIDS. The range of the papers collected here makes this book essential reading for students of all humanities disciplines.
