Entitled “This Living Claw: Handwriting as Monstrosity in Miyazaki and Monsters, Inc.,” Dr. Kashtan’s paper discussed the relationship between handwriting and monsters as seen in Pete Docter’s film Monsters, Inc. and Hayao Miyazaki’s films Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro. Dr. Kashtan is currently working on a revised version of the paper for submission as a journal article.
