>From Buffy to Blade to Bram Stoker, we are looking for
papers and presentations that cover the vampire in
literature, culture, and film (with a reading time of
15-20 minutes) for the National Popular Culture
Association/American Culture Association Conference in
Boston, MA, April 4-7, 2007. This is a fairly broad
and open-ended topic as the vampire is found in many
mediums, especially in popular culture, so just about
any topic on the vampire is sought for this new area
of study at the PCA/ACA. Graduate students are
particularly encouraged to send proposals.
