OGOM LogoIn the Open Graves, Open Minds Project, we unearthed depictions of the vampire and the undead in literature, art, and other media, before embracing shapeshifting creatures (most recently, the werewolf) and other supernatural beings and their worlds. OGOM opens up questions concerning genre, gender, hybridity, cultural change, and other realms. The Project now extends to all narratives of the fantastic, the folkloric, the fabulous, and the magical. You can find out more by viewing the story of OGOM through its reception in the media here.
