Book Prize for Twilight of the Gothic

Congratulations to Joseph Crawford who was just won the Allan Lloyd Smith Memorial prize for his monograph Twilight of the Gothic (University of Wales Press, 2013). Joseph came to speak to UH ‘Reading the Vampire’ students about this work earlier in the year and delighted us with his knowledge and enthusiasm for vampire romance. You can read about this research seminar and our discussions here, together with my favourite quote from the book, now on my updated reading list for vampire fiction!

Dr Crawford will also be presenting a paper, ‘No more than a wild beast or a brute’: Wagner the Werewolf, Sweeney Todd and the Limits of Human Responsibility, at the Company of Wolves Conference in September.
