MAPACA -- Vampire Romance Panel; Alexandria, VA, 10/28/10-10/31/10 (Submissions Due 6/15/10)
Vampire Romance welcomes papers/presentations which examine any of the recent (and not so recent) representations of vampires not as blood-sucking fiends, but as romantic heroes in film, television, art, and literature. Though not an exhaustive list, potential presenters may wish to consider the following:
The Byronic Hero
Race and Otherness
Language and Rhetoric
Fans and Fandom
Sociological or Psychological Readings
For those who relish their vampire fiends, MAPACA also has a place for you. See our "Horror" area.
