This Fall

A Vampire for Every Age

Monday, October 23, 5 p.m.
IU Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology
Join Dr. Jeff Holdeman as he talks about how every age creates the vampire it needs. He will discuss how and why vampires have evolved over time and across cultures and into different types, eventually leading to the movies of today and the modern subculture vampire.  Holdeman is the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures.  He earned his Ph.D. in Slavic Linguistics from Ohio State in August of 2002 and began his work at IU three days later.  His main research interests lie in the history, language, names, and identity of the Russian Old Believers in the United States and in their previous homelands of Poland and Lithuania, where he has been conducting annual fieldwork since 1999.  He offered his first vampire course at IU in the fall of 2008, and has been teaching every year ever since.
