Here are my brief comments about seven of the articles that are posted online:

1 - "Werewolves and White Trash," opengravesopenminds.files.word…

Why do werewolves get "second billing" compared to vampires?   I suspect it's because there are many more books written about vampires.  

2 - "No More Than a Wild Beast or a Brute," opengravesopenminds.files.word…

A 19th century werewolf novel portrays "Wagner the Werewolf" as a violent madman.   This novel has none of the appeal of Bram Stoker's "Dracula."  Perhaps vampire books have been more popular because many vampire characters are depicted as attractive.

3 - "
The stubborn beast-flesh grows day by day back again," opengravesopenminds.files.word…

While H.G. Wells had transformations in "The Island of Dr. Moreau," no characters that were originally human turn into animals.  I'm not sure how this 19th century novel is related to "transhumanism" today.

4 - "
The Beast Without," opengravesopenminds.files.word…

The werewolf films from the 1970s mentioned in this article aren't well known.   

5 - "
Rabid Bitches and Fanged Whores," opengravesopenminds.files.word…

19th century novels with female lycanthropes?  Even more obscure than the films.

6 - "Wild Sanctuary: Running into the Forest in Russian Fairy Tales," opengravesopenminds.files.word…

I wonder why they didn't also mention the role of bears in Russian folklore.

7 - "I’m Hairy on the Inside," opengravesopenminds.files.word…

If you are defining a werewolf as a human who turns into a wolf, most movie werewolves don't meet the definition.   Their transformations usually result in a monster that doesn't resemble an actual wolf.
