Vampir Deyip Gecmeyin!

Fantastik edebiyat giderek akademilerde tartisilan ve uzerine yayinlar yapilan bir alan haline geliyor. Yakin zamanda gozumuze carpan iki duyuruyu takipcilerimizle paylasmak istedik. Bu konularda yazmak veya arastirma yapmak isteyenlerin hosuna gidebilir. Ilki Ingiltere'de Bram Stoker uzerine yapilacak bir konferans icin cagri, ikincisi ise Drakula Calismalari Dergisi'nin duyurusu:

1) "My revenge is just begun! I spread it over centuries and time is on my side" (Dracula, 1897). This conference, which marks the centenary of Bram Stoker's death, will take place at the University of Hull, UK and Whitby from 12-14 April 2012.

The conference explores the iconic significance of Stoker's vampire novel and seeks to reappraise Stoker’s work within its fin-de-siècle cultural climate. It is also interested in examining the broader context of the changing nature of Gothic productions from the late eighteenth century to the present. Using Dracula as a key point in the evolution of the genre, the conference is keen to explore the novel’s Gothic predecessors and influences, and the manner in which Stoker’s fiction renewed the Gothic for future generations.

How do the Gothic’s early themes of despotic rulers and fathers, grim prophecies, supernatural embodiments, incarceration, labyrinthine passages and corridors, threatened females, and sexual deviancy transform in subsequent cultural outputs from novels, theatre, films, television and computer games? How has the Gothic in its modern manifestations and variations sustained itself into a fourth century?
