Was Count Dracula Actually Irish?

October 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


The Gothic horror novel Dracula has never been out of print since its first publication in 1897, yet the book’s Irish author is not as well-known as his immortal character. This course unearths clues in the life

and experiences of Bram Stoker, the Dublin-born novelist, and in Irish history, mythology, folklore and language, to answer the question in the course title. This is a rare (and fun!) investigation into the unique Irish influences that inspired the classic tale and shaped its enduring legacy. Note: Reading the novel is not a prerequisite for the course.
