Description

The resurgence of the vampire myth in literature, cinema, TV series, and even the toy industry has steadily grown since the second half of the 20th century. Because of its hybrid nature (neither alive nor dead), the vampire figure is often used as a metaphor to discuss gender and race issues. In this presentation, I will discuss the use of vampires in Latin American literature as symbols to question the region‚ gender roles and heteronormativity.
