Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This is the first guide to the grotesque that relates the critical term to contemporary theoretical paradigms and modes of representation. Thus, the volume contributes to the invaluable introductory guides in the New Critical Idiom series by providing an accessible presentation of the critical term ‘the grotesque’. The authors offer a handy, explanatory guide to the use (and abuse) of the grotesque. But they also present an original and distinctive overview of ‘the grotesque’ as it relates to the larger field of cultural representation, particularly in literature, visual art and film.
