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.

READING NATURE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE. MADRID, SPAIN (DEC. 14-16, 2011)

Environmental disciplines have recently gained prominence due to the potentially devastating consequences of climate change: increasing natural disasters, the greenhouse effect, temperature variations, changing sea levels, etc. Such issues have raised awareness on the necessity for a drastic change in thinking. Ecocriticism—along with other green disciplines dealing with the relationship between society and the environment—places nature as the center of the intellectual debate. As Kate Rigby states, "culture constructs the prism through which we know nature." Reading Nature Conference aims to explore from a critical perspective how such a prism is constructed.
