Given we had some papers on Buffy at the original Open Graves, Open Minds conference in 2010 and that she made an appearance in both the OGOM book and the special issue of Gothic Studies on vampires (and that we have just had a session on her and Twilight in the ‘Reading the Vampire’ MA module) I thought this article was worth linking to.
I am all for Buffyology in the academy but the MA students are well versed in Shakespeare too having completed undergraduate degrees in literature and that is precisely the point, having engaged with the canon it can successfully be broadened and developed and Buffy can be invited in (hooray).
Has Buffy slayed the bard? Have you studied Buffy? Let me know….
