In a new course being offered this fall, English 130: Literary Encounters - Vampiresthe English department's Michael Carter will introduce students to the storied mythology of vampires whose written history dates back to over a century before Bram Stoker's iconic Dracula.
In this podcast, Carter discusses the origins of what we call vampires today; what students can expect in the class through its examination of literature, film, and television; and some of the reasons why Vampires have achieved such eternal cultural relevance including unlikely connections to economics.
