Daughter of Fangdom: A Conference on Women and Television Vampires
18 April 2015   The University of Roehampton, London

Following the success of TV Fangdom: A Conference on Television Vampires in 2013, the organisers announce a follow-up one-day conference, Daughter of Fangdom: A Conference on Women and the Television Vampire. Though Dracula remains the iconic image, female vampires have been around at least as long, if not longer, than their male counterparts and now they play a pivotal role within the ever expanding world of the TV vampire, often undermining or challenging the male vampires that so often dominate these shows. Women have also long been involved in the creation and the representation of vampires both male and female. The fiction of female writers such as Charlaine Harris and L.J. Smith has served as core material for the televisual conception and re-conception of the reluctant vampire, while TV writers and producers such as Marti Noxon (Buffy) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries and The Originals) have played a significant role in shaping the development of the genre for television.

Since vampires are not technically human, the terms male and female may apply, but representation of gender has the potential to be more fluid if vampires exist outside of human society. Given the ubiquity of the vampire in popular culture and particularly on TV, how is the female represented in vampire television? What roles do women have in bringing female vampires to the small screen? In what ways has the female vampire been remade for different eras of television, different TV genres, or different national contexts? Is the vampire on TV addressed specifically to female audiences and how do female viewers engage with TV vampires? What spaces exist on television for evading the gender binary and abandoning categories of male and female vampires altogether?

Keynote speakers:

·          Janet K. Halfyard (Birmingham Conservatoire), editor of Music, Sound and Silence in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Ashgate, 2009) and The Music of Fantasy Cinema (Equinox, 2012.)

“Listen to the Bloody Music: Scoring Women in Vampire TV from Buffy to Hemlock Grove.”

·          Linnie Blake (Manchester Metropolitan University), Director of the Manchester Centre for Gothic Studies, editor of Digital Nightmares: Wired Ghosts, CCTV Horror and the Found Footage Phenomenon (forthcoming from IB Tauris)

"Bloodsucking Parasites: Vampires, Women and the 1%."
