    Vampires course for spring

    RUSS 2241

    "The Vampire in Literature and the Visual Arts"

    This course will pursue the question of why the vampire will not “die,” but instead continues to appeal to modern and postmodern imaginations. Through a wide range of readings, art, film and critical analyses we will trace the evolution of the literary vampire from a terrifying villain of lore into a sympathetic and even desirable figure of modern popular culture.

    This course fills the core curriculum for Literature and the Arts.
