The Life and Work of Bram Stoker

updated: 
Wednesday, March 30, 2011 - 4:20am
Trinity College Dublin

Bram Stoker loved Trinity College, and spent, arguably, his happiest years here. He was Auditor of the Historical Society and President of the Philosophical Society, and a member of very many College sporting societies. However, despite his vampire creation, Dracula, being world-famous, and in spite of the spate of academic studies of the novel in which he first appeared, Stoker himself remains a figure shrouded in some darkness and his other writings are virtually unknown and ignored by those who have heard of him. A public conference, to be held in Stoker's alma mater in Dublin, where he was born and grew up, will address this large gap.
