Dr Lorna Jowett’s TV Fangdom impresses scholar at Spain’s University of Oviedo
Dr Lorna Jowett, Dr Stacey Abbott (The University of Roehampton) and Dr Mike Starr’s recent success with the TV Fangdom conference on Television Vampires (The University of Northampton, 7-8 June 2013), which featured key scholars Brigid Cherry and Marcus Recht as well as an outstanding presentation on often forgotten British TV vampires by BFI Television curator, Lisa Kerrigan has just welcomed a further success. Dr María Mariño Faza, a lecturer at the University of Oviedo, Spain could not attend the conference but was so impressed by news of the scholars involved that she has decided to spend time researching representations of vampires and the supernatural at The University of Northampton School of the Arts this summer.
We look forward to welcoming Dr Mariño Faza to our research community and furthering our links with Spanish Universities, which have been exemplified by our collaboration with the University of Vigo in relation to the ‘Narratives of Difference’ conference and the University of Zaragoza in regards to our shared interest in trauma narratives and our student exchange programme. Indeed, current University of Zaragoza PhD student, Maria Pilar Royo Grasa will be speaking with Professor Janet Wilson at a School of the Arts Research Seminar on Gail Jones at 2pm on Wednesday 3rd July.
