CSJ Popular Culture Conference
The College of Saint Joseph in Rutland, Vt. will hold its third annual Popular Culture Conference, ‘American Horror from the Great Depression to the Great Recession,’ Friday and Saturday, April 11 and 12, from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.. Presenters will cover Images of ‘Regeneration,’ ‘Dreams from a Witch House’ and ‘Categories of Horror.’
“We have a really diverse panel. Presenters will examine movies, canonical literature, main-stream stuff and horror as a field,” said Jonas Prida, associate professor of English. Panels are free and open to the public, but meals are included for a $25 registration fee. Walk-in registration is available through the morning of April 12.
“The conference gives you a chance to see that you can look at horror movies, novels, etc. in a more interesting and complex way,” Prida said. “Seeing that these texts are rich doesn’t eliminate the entertainment value, it actually enhances it.” More information is available at csj.edu/pop-culture.
