I’ve long said I’d go back to school for my graduate degree only when I found a program I was passionate about.
I’ve found it.
University of Hertfordshire in the UK will be offering an MA in Vampire Literature, beginning this fall. I’m not quite sure where Hertfordshire is, what the entrance requirements are, or how much it would cost, but I’m checking student visa requirements now.
On top of that, from April 16-17, the University of Hertforshire will host a two day conference entitled “Open Graves, Open Minds: Vampires and the Undead in Modern Culture”. Apparently some of the awesome papers presented at the conference sessions will be used in the graduate program:
- Gothic Charm School, or How Vampires Learned to Sparkle
- “Vegetarian” Vampires: Morality of the Anti-Villain in Selected Vampire Novels
- Fundamentalism, Hybridity and the Vampire body: Postmodern Vampirism and the Presidency of George W. Bush
If you were attending the conference, what paper would you want to concoct and present?
Via i09, the blog I wish I wrote.
