Maymester Core Course: RUSS 2241 The Vampire in Literature and the Visual Arts

Course will pursue the question of why the vampire will not “die,” but instead continues to appeal to modern and post-modern imaginations. Through a wide range of readings, art, film and critical analyses we will trace the evolution of the literary vampire from a terrifying creature of lore into the Romantic and highly sexual being of popular Western culture. Approved for Arts & Sciences Core Curriculum: Literature and the Arts.
