Bram Stoker’s Dracula: Was he actually Irish?

Class Schedule: Tuesday Oct. 31 & Thursday November. 2 | 7:30 – 9:00 PM

The Gothic horror novel Dracula has never been out of print since its publication in 1897; yet, the book’s Dublin-born author, Bram Stoker, is virtually unknown. This course unearths clues in the life and experiences of Stoker, as well as in Irish history, mythology, folklore and language, to answer the question in the course title. This two-session virtual course taught by Maureen D. Brady is a unique investigation of the novel focused on the Irish influences that inspired the classic tale and shaped its enduring legacy. Note: Reading the novel is not a prerequisite for the course.

Zoom Link will be provided upon registration.
