Following a successful session last year devoted to Bram Stoker's Dracula and its afterlives, the Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and Legend Area of the Northeast Popular Culture/American Culture Association seeks to continue our association with the New England Region of the American Conference for Irish Studies by organizing a session (or set of sessions) devoted to the larger topic of monsters and the Irish imagination.
