New guest blogger

Posted by Dale Townshend on December 02, 2009 in News tagged with

Dr Giselle Anatol of the University of Kansas will soon be starting a guest blog on the soucouyant and other vampiric figures from the African diasporic tradition.

Dr Anatol is currently writing a book that explores the cultural implications of vampires in African diasporic folk traditions and investigates the recent proliferation of narratives by writers of African descent who take up the demonic character and reconfigure it to urge for female empowerment and mobility.
