Sue Weaver Schopf, Harvard University: “The Vampire in Literature: A Very Strange Love Affair”
Sue Weaver Schopf is Associate Dean and Director of the Master of Liberal Arts Program, Research Advisor in the Humanities, and Lecturer at the Harvard Extension School. She has received post-doctoral fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Mellon Foundation and is a winner of the Petra T. Shattuck Excellence in Teaching Prize. In 2010, she created a new course, "The Vampire in Literature and Film," which became the largest humanities course ever offered at the Harvard Extension School and drew a world-wide audience. The course garnered a great deal of unexpected attention, leading to interviews with the Boston Globe, the Chicago Tribune, MTV.com, NPR’s "Here and Now," and WGBH's "Callie Crossley Show."
Gordon College is located in Wenham, MA on Boston’s historic North Shore, just 25 miles north of the city.
Please send an electronic copy of your paper and your abstract, as well as inquiries about the colloquium to LLUCgordon.edu.
