Several people have been responsible for helping this project reach fruition. Conversations with, suggestions from, and the insights from the scholarship of Kendall Phillips and Joshua Gunn encouraged me to start writing. My undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in my Monsters in Popular Culture and Feminist Horror in the 2000s seminars at the University of Denver helped me refine my understandings and approach to monstrosity. While each of them was important in this project, I am particularly thankful to Sergio Juarez, Haneen Al-Ghabra, Brendan Hughes, Charles Lulevitt, Jaime Guzmán, Raisa Alvarado Uchima, Shadee Abdi, Robert Gutierrez-Perez, Miranda Olzman, Amanda Meise, Melodee Sova, Stephanie Webb, and Michael Xiang Li for their enthusiastic support and inspiration. Miranda Olzman offered a great deal of help in gathering and organizing materials from the Gloria Anzaldúa Archives. Thank you to Paula Martin for her friendship, kindness, and endless assistance. I am grateful to members of my writing group including Elizabeth Suter, Mary Claire Morr-Serewicz, Erin Willer, Nicole Nicotera, and Michele Hanna for their encouragement and accountability in completing this project.
