Folklore, Vampires, and Haunted Landscapes: Research Seminars to Die For!!

springheeledjack

I am delighted to have the following speakers coming to the university in the spring. Their  papers tie in well with OGOM whilst opening up some interesting new research strands around folklore, gothic tourism and uncanny topographies. These research seminars are free and take place on Wednesdays 3.30-5.00.  All are welcome (depending on places available) and I am always happy to meet with interesting students and researchers who work in these areas. Time to put these in your diary. Do email me if you would like to attend on s.george@herts.ac.uk

6th May Dr Karl Bell,  University of Portsmouth, ‘Folkloric Crossovers: Spring-Heeled Jack and the nineteenth-century vampire myth’

13th May Prof. Lucie Armitt, University of Lincoln, ‘Haunted Landscapes: footfall, traveling and the uncanniness of topography’
