Vampire Fictions

This 12 week, first-year undergraduate module examines the cultural history of the vampire in prose fiction from the early nineteenth century to the present day. Focusing each week on a key literary text – from classics such as Dracula, to popular contemporary manifestations such as Twilight – we will analyse the evolution of the vampire and what it represents within the historical and cultural contexts of each text studied. Adopting a range of critical lenses, from Marxist readings to Postcolonial approaches, we will chart the development of the vampire as a literary figure.
