Sinking Teeth into Dracula

John Edgar Browning owes his love of Dracula — and much of his scholarly career — to his family’s VCR.

Growing up, he watched the movies his family taped off television. Horror was his favorite. He was likely one of the few kindergarten students familiar with the oeuvre of Freddy Krueger and Jason from Friday the 13th.

Today, Browning is a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication who is an internationally recognized vampire and horror scholar. He has published nearly a dozen books, and his latest, The Vampire in Europe: A Critical Edition, comes out this month.
