Devin Elliott, 2nd Year Pop Culture MA Student will present on his recent folklore research trip to the towns of Point Pleasant, Flatwoods, and Grafton, WV. Devin will be discussing his research on the impact of West Virginian monsters, or “Cryptids” on the overall image of these towns and how these towns chose to either embrace or reject the monsters as icons. This talk is presented by the Popular Culture Scholars Association as part of their colloquium series. All are welcome.
