Kakanien conference and anthology

News from the Kakanien Revisited project on the conference on vampirism:

'The Thyssen-Foundation has agreed on funding the conference "Vampirism and magia posthuma in the Habsburg Discourse, 18th/19th Century" to be held in July 2009 in cooperation with the Institute for Eastern European History at the University of Vienna. Papers will be held by international experts on the subject. The conference topics will address the figure of the vampire in Religion / Anthropology, Medicine / Enlightement, Metaphors / Media, Phenomena of the Threshold / Discourses of Hybridity.

Accordingly, a new Digital Anthology on Vampirism has just been started. Articles by Clemens Ruthner, Peter Mario Kreuter, and Christoph Augustynowicz, which had already been published in the Case Studies' section of Kakanien revisited troughout the past years, are now to be found here. You can navigate these articles with their old, as well as with their new URLs.'
