Members of the Transylvanian Society of Dracula (Canadian chapter) receive a copy of the society’s annual scholarly publication, the Journal of Dracula Studies. Mine arrived in the post today.
This issue features four essays: Creighton Nicholas Brown’s “Dracula’s Colonized Tongue Speaks Through Fanged Teeth”, Jami McFarland’s “Triangulated Desire in Meyer’s Twilight: A Queer Dynamic”, Laura Linker’s ” ‘The End of Exile Is the End of Being’: The Enlightenment and the Death of the Femme Fatale in Angela Carter’s ‘The Lady of the House of Love'” and S. Brooke Cameron and Suyin Olguin’s “A Very Victorian Feast: Food and the Importance of Consumption in Modern Adaptations of Dracula.”
The society also publishes a quarterly newsletter called The Borgo Post, which I’ve been published in before (see Hogg 2011)—and hopefully will again, as I’ve written an article for its next issue and already sent it off to the editor. I’ve also got an essay in mind for the Journal of Dracula Studies, but I must admit, its 4000-6000 word count (Dracula Research Center 2013) is somewhat daunting for what I want to cover. Nonetheless, it could be possible. We’ll see.
In the meantime, I highly recommend joining the society. For pricing and a list of member benefits, see: http://blooferland.com/tsd.html.
