This article is inspired both by the radical feminist work of Daly and the post/modern possibilities of deconstruction. The author adopts a monstrous textual form to show and warn fellow voyagers in the academic mode of production that challenging exclusion and assimilation involves thinking beyond existing forms and going beyond "methodolatory". Shelley's Frankenstein provides the basis for a feminist gothic approach that emphasizes research as a written, passionate, and embodied process with consequences for the researcher and the researched. The article asserts the narrative inevitability of intertextuality, examines the gendering of knowledge, and presents a discursive challenge to the subject/object binary.
