Product description

Product Description

This collection of original essays presents pedagogical tools, methods, and approaches for incorporating the figure of the vampire into the learning environment of the college classroom, in the hopes of ushering the Undead out of the coffin and into the classroom. The essays foster interdisciplinary collaboration and dialogue, and serve as a collective resource for those currently teaching the vampire as well as newcomers to vampire studies. Opening with a foreword by Sam George, the collection is organized around such topics as historicizing the vampire, teaching the diverse vampire, and engaging the student learner. Interwoven throughout the volume are strategies for incorporating writing instruction and generating conversations about texts (“texts” defined broadly so as to include film and other media). The vampire allows instructors to explore timeless themes such as life and death, love and passion, immortality, and monstrosity and Otherness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific group of articles with multiple uses and idea! 15 October 2015
By Eames - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love the articles in this book. As a college professor this book provides multiple aspects of looking at the Vampire myth and its ongoing popularity to enrich classroom experiences and teach or illuminate basic theroies. It is connected to multiple disciplines from literary to folkloric to other social sciences.
