Kutztown University’s English department recently acquired the Journal of Dracula Studies, edited by Dr. Curt Herr and Dr. Anne DeLong. This peer-reviewed academic journal is published yearly and features scholarly articles from around the world on Bram Stoker, Dracula, and depictions of vampires in folklore, fiction, film and popular culture.

A special anniversary volume was published in June 2015. The issue, entitled Monstrous Shadows featured a substantial collaboration of faculty and students at KU. The issue was edited by Dr. Anne DeLong and Dr. Curt Herr. Dr. Jonathan Shaw served on the editorial board and Prof. Bill Prystauk was a contributing scholar. English Major James Carraghan worked as a copy editor and the special issue cover was designed by Communication Design Major Madison Stauffer.

Kutztown University is one of three American universities (along with Seton Hall and Emerson) that have been chosen to coordinate this year’s International Vampire Film and Arts Festival (IVFAF), to be held May 25-28, 2017, in Sighisoara, Transylvania, in the citadel which is the birthplace of Vlad Dracula.
