Victorian Freaks

Category : History
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-General American
Vocal Style : Authoritative
Performance Notes
'Victorian Freaks - The Social Context of Freakery in Britain', examines the struggle over definitions of "freakery" and the unstable and sometimes conflicting ways in which freakery was understood and deployed. Presented in an enjoyable yet authoritative style, the essays presented discusses figures as varied as Joseph Merrick, "The Elephant Man"; Daniel Lambert, "King of the Fat Men"; Julia Pastrana, "The Bear Woman"; and Laloo, "The Marvellous Indian Boy" and his embedded, parasitic twin. Victorian culture is examined through the lens of freakery, reading the production of the freak against the landscape of capitalist consumption, the medical community, and the politics of empire, sexuality, and art. Collectively, these essays ask how freakery engaged with notions of normalcy and with its Victorian cultural context.
