For Friday by midnight, read Susan Sontag's “The Imagination of Disaster” in RPC and blog a summary of the article and response to Question 4. Comment on another's post anytime over the weekend, to receive credit for your own post.

about that experience, explain what you already know about vampires from film,
television, and literature.
Also for Monday, read Ch. I-VI from
This is some serious reading and writing we're jumping into here, so try to give yourself plenty of time.
Finally, I will not be in class on Thursday! Instead, a sub will come to show a film. Watch it, take notes, and then complete and turn in to her the short writing assignment she gives you after. Please, show up on time, as the sub will start the film promptly at 1pm to give you enough time to respond!
Come to class on Monday prepared to discuss Sontag, Stoker, and the film!
