From the past to the present, the supernatural has inundated our popular culture. Zombies, witches, vampires, and werewolves star in our books, television shows, graphic novels, comics, stage performances, and films. This conference will contribute to the already rich discussion surrounding these topics that may already be taking place in our classrooms, on our campuses, and in our culture.

PCEA invites proposals for original creative works and critical interpretations that celebrate our theme. We also welcome all proposals related to the study and/or teaching of literature, film, composition and linguistics, as well as creative works.
The conference will also feature a special showing of one of Russo and Streiner's films followed by a question and answer session. Entry to this presentation is included for all conference participants, but those interested in attending this session only can purchase separate tickets. Limited autographed, film memorabilia will also be available.
