      "Dracula Film Spoofs: Funny and Loving It"
      Wes D. Gehring writes that “parody is often comically affectionate in nature … Thus parody is the most palatable of critical approaches, offering insights though laughter.” The title of my talk takes its cue from the 1995 film, Dracula: Dead and Loving It, starring Leslie Nielsen as Count Dracula. It was directed and produced by Mel Brooks, who also co-wrote the screenplay and portrays Abraham Van Helsing. In addition to Dracula: Dead and Loving It, I will be discussing a sampling of other Dracula spoofs.

      "'Who cares what becomes of the likes of me?': Giving Voice to Ivy Pearson in Rouben Mamoulian's Jekyll and Hyde (1931)"

      There are few female characters in Stevenson’s classic 1886 novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and this is likely by design. Stevenson’s story reflects a patriarchal late-Victorian society; two ancillary female characters, a little girl and a maid, inhabit this world of men. However, Mamoulian’s 1931 film Jekyll and Hyde adds two major dichotomous female characters: the traditional woman, Muriel Carew, and the fallen woman, Ivy Pearson. This presentation will focus on Ivy and how adding this character crafts a haunting portrait of domestic abuse stemming from addiction. Five major scenes depict the progression of abuse, which ultimately leads to Ivy’s murder.

      "Untangling Late-Victorian Anxieties: Hair Symbolism in Dracula"

      Discourses about both hair and vampirism possess a surprisingly shared vocabulary: It grows into a biologically dead entity originating at small holes in the skin; what is visible is comprised of dead cells; it both symbolizes and is corporally bound to identity; it evokes sexuality; it could be termed undead because it functions while both alive and dead. It is difficult to discern whether these allusions are to hair or to vampires because the similarities between the two are numerous. Their commonalities create a provocative basis for a discussion of hair symbolism in Bram Stoker’s classic 1897 vampire novel, Dracula.

      “William Crain’s Blacula as Foreign and Ethnic Other"

      William Crain’s 1972 horror blaxploitation film Blacula is an unusual Dracula film because it does not represent the Dracula character that originated in Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel as the Other. A summary of the film, an analysis of its iconography and narrative conventions, and a discussion of its historical context within the blaxploitation genre will construct a foundation for consideration of Blacula’s otherness and varied audience reception.

      “Films, Books, and Ducks: The Undead Influence of Stoker’s Dracula"

      The weight of popular culture in dissementating the Dracula image cannot be overestimated. In her 1989 text, American Vampires, Norine Dresser observes about Dracula's influence in America: "He is as ubiquitious as the Big Mac" (119). Dracula's absorption into global society is extensive and diverse, and Dracula the Industry is difficult to overlook, espeically around Halloween. However, one need not wait until October 31 to encounter the Count. Dracula is everywhere, from lunch boxes to rubber ducks to nutcrackers to Christmas ornaments. His popular culture offshoots include Count Chocula, a sizable cyberspace presencce, organizations populated by academics and fans, video games, and guest apperarances on televeision shows such as The Simpsons. Technological advances such as the DVD, continued publication of Dracula, and the Dracula image's dissimination by popular culture are just three factors that contribute to Dracula's undying rein as king of the undead.

        There will be a concentration on works of British literature with focus on how cultural, geographic, and political issues shape and reflect literature in a particular culture. It will examine at least three genres and six authors. There will be an emphasis on critical thinking, reading, and writing.

        It would be clearly impossible to survey all of British literature in one short semester. In order to get an understanding and appreciation of British literature, we will study some of the major authors and their works, complemented by film and audio materials. Our focus will be on the Victorian era. Many of the cultural and social issues that consumed this era are ones that we still deal with today: crime, poverty, science and the effect of technology, and the rights of individuals. We will study some significant British works to see how these and other issues are reflected in the texts and to discover how these issues influence us as individuals.

      • ENGL 2319-002 British Literature: Victorian Literature and Culture

        It would be clearly impossible to survey all of British literature in one short semester. In order to get an understanding and appreciation of British literature, we will study some of the major authors and their works, complemented by film and audio materials. Our focus will be on the Victorian era (roughly 1837-1901). Many of the cultural and social issues that consumed this era are ones that we still deal with today: crime, poverty, science and the effect of technology, and the rights of individuals. We will study some significant British works to see how these and other issues are reflected in the texts and to discover how these issues influence us as individuals. There will be an emphasis on critical thinking, reading, and writing.

      • ENGL 2303-001 Topics in Literature: Vampires in Literature and Popular Culture

        Why are vampires so fascinating? Is it their immortality? Is it because they are the supernatural creature that most resembles us?
