Detta är en Master-uppsats från Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för etnologi, religionshistoria och genusvetenskap

Sammanfattning: This study investigates monstrous representations through gender and body in the two fantasy tv-shows Locke & Keyand The Witcher. The aim of the study is to examine how these representations move beyond the gender and body binary and how this creates meaning for its audience. To highlight these monstrous representations this study focuses on two characters from each series, Dodge and Yennefer. As a methodological approach this study uses a thematic analysis as well as a modified trans reading and four themes have been identified in the material: the ambivalent and ambiguous monstrosity, the variable body and gender, the perfect monstrosity, and human monsters. To analyze these themes the study will operate within the framework of monster theory as well as research surrounding trans and crip. The research concludes that gender and body, through the monstrous, is in constant motion and that monstrous embodiment is made through difference where all bodies and genders are changeable and fluid.
