Abstract [en]

In this essay I explore modern mythmaking surrounding werewolves, with focus on what werewolves are made to represent in two modern teen movies, Ginger Snaps and Teen Wolf. Within the themes bodily transitions and the new self the movies are explored mainly through Julia Kristeva’s concept of the abject as understood by Erin Flaherty, Jennie Olofssons and Elizabeth Grosz’s understanding of leakage and Reawyn Connell’s model of hegemonic masculinity. I find that the narrative of werewolf transformations is employed to emphasize and exaggerate themes of femininity, masculinity and puberty already present in popular narratives of adolescence.

Abstract [sv]

I den här uppsatsen utforskar jag modernt mytskapande kring varulvar, med fokus på vad varulvar representerar i två samtida ungdomsfilmer, Ginger Snaps och Teen Wolf. Med utgångspunkt i temana kroppsliga förändringar och det nya jaget analyseras filmerna, främst med hjälp utav Julia Kristevas koncept av det abjekta så som det tillämpas utav Erin Flaherty, Jennie Olofssons och Elizabeth Grozs förståelse kring läckage och Reawyn Connells modell av hegemonisk maskulinitet. Jag kommer fram till att varulvsförvandlingar används för att förstärka och överdriva motiv kring femininitet, maskulinitet och pubertet som redan existerar inom populära beskrivningar av adolescensen.
