In October last year, Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia acquired what has been described as the world’s most comprehensive collection of rare materials highlighting the work of Bram Stoker, the 19th century Irish author best known for "Dracula". This Stoker archive is extensive, containing nearly 4,000 items including original letters, manuscripts, playbills, first editions, artwork, reference books and other primary source materials on spirits and vampirism that Stoker was known to have used as research for "Dracula".

In this online illustrated talk, Sheila Cavanagh, a senior lecturer at Emory will share the highlights of the collection revealing details of Stoker’s life as he wrote "Dracula" with emphasis on some of his source materials. She will further explain how the novel grew to have a wide influence on literacy, cinema and popular culture.

This lecture will take place virtually, via Zoom. Attendees may request a video recording after the lecture takes place by emailing proof of purchase to [email protected]
