Dacre Stoker in Class

…a report from Dr. Caroline Breashears on Dacre Stokeer taking in an FYP!

Class: FYP “Monsters in the Mainstream,” instructors Jeremy Riedl and Patrick McManus, Tuesday, 25 October 10:10-11:40.

Dacre gave the class an introduction to vampires.  He first showed a new documentary (which includes interviews with Dacre, Anne Rice, etc.) about the history of vampires: the early folklore, the literary vampire, the vampire in film, and vampires (real and imagined) in our culture.  He then led the students in a discussion of why vampires are scary and how they have changed.  It was a lively, engaged group.

The aforementioned zombies are the ones with the headbands…
