Upcoming Vampire Symposium

If you’re in the UK, circle your calendar for March 8, 2014. ASSAP, the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena, is holding a vampire symposium at Goldsmiths College, London (ASSAP 2013a).

Key speakers include Stacey Abbott, author of Celluloid Vampires: Life after Death in the Modern World (2007) and Maria Mellins, author of Vampire Culture (2013).

A flip through the papers being presented (ASSAP 2013b) reveals they’ll cover ground from folklore, fiction, history, movies and the vampire community. I’m particularly intrigued by Kathryn Harkup’s “The Science of Vampires” and John Fraser’s “The Men Who ‘Invented’ Vampires??” Hopefully, the papers will be published in an anthology.
