>This collection of essays seeks to investigate and explore the 
>impulse by which global communities continue to reinvent Dracula in 
>film, whether in an attempt to confront oppression or repression, or 
>to embody social ills and taboos. Thus, theoretical analyses of the 
>transnational generation of Dracula's cinematic offspring are highly 
>sought.  Contributions to this collection of essays should examine 
>Dracula films and the ways in which Dracula's movement across 
>borders of nationality, sexuality, ethnicity, gender, and film genre 
>since the 1920s has engendered conflicting conceptualizations about 
>the formation of the "other," identity, and ideology that oscillate 
>between conservative and liberal spheres of normalcy. While this 
>collection is concerned with the complex web of interrelationships 
>between the historical, cultural, and literary counterparts that 
>make up the conventional body of cinematic work from mainstream 
>studios like Universal, Metro, Hammer, Columbia, AIP, equ!
>  ally important is the significantly larger, yet predominantly 
>under-appreciated body of cinematic work that has poured out of 
>other global markets. We are searching for essays that address these 
>concerns by using single-film or period-based analysis. 
>
>With the focus of this collection targeting Dracula and Dracula-type 
>characters in films from not only the United States and England but 
>from other global markets, this collection welcomes submissions that 
>seek to ground Dracula depictions and experiences within a larger 
>political, historical and cultural framework, seeking to identify 
>how different ethnic groups represent themselves and their distinct 
>movements across borders in the Dracula cinema myth. Chapters may 
>focus on isolating new, developing tendencies toward transnational 
>modes of cultural production, or may instead excavate and trace past 
>tendencies from older depictions.
>
>We seek perspectives engaged in the fields of literature, media 
>studies, cultural studies, history, anthropology, philosophy, 
>psychology, sociology, health, medicine, criminology, and theology. 
>As payment, each contributor will receive 1 copy of the completed 
>book.
