(In)Human Anatomy: Constructions of Otherness in the Fiction of H.P. Lovecraft

By Katherine Avery

Hometown: Burke, Virginia

Department: English

Advisor: Richard Lowry

 

The work of H.P. Lovecraft, though acknowledged as having revolutionized the horror genre, is nonetheless suffused with racism and xenophobia. In it, the human Other (people of color or 'degraded' whites) exists alongside inhuman, monstrous 'Others.' My Honors Thesis will contextualize Lovecraft's work within 20th-century white supremacy and consider the significance of racialized Otherness in the American horror tradition.
