Hunting Monsters – Lecture

From sea monsters and Nessie to Bigfoot, the Queensland tiger and the Mokele-Mbembe of the Congo, monsters – technically known as cryptids – hold our fascination.

In this lecture guest curator Dr Darren Naish explores the intriguing work of a maverick group of monster experts and aficionados – the cryptozoologists. He poses the question: are there good reasons for believing in these creatures in the first place? For monsters, you see, might tell us more about the human mind than the creatures that exist outside of it.
