The Over-Analysers' Book Club presents: Dracula
Thursday 10th May 18:30 at London - Tottenham Court Road
“We learn from failure, not from success!”
The Over-Analysers’ Book Club will be treating the gothic classic to an hour and a half of its attention.
Six acts from the worlds of academia and comedy have nine minutes each to sink their teeth into this gothic classic and suck out its strangest, silliest, most interesting, or downright filthy angles for your entertainment.
The line up, compered by Steve Cross, includes:
Amanda DiGioia, PhD Student at SSEES, UCL, looking at the Daddies in Dracula: The good, the bad, and the ugly
Recovering soil scientist Sarah Jones on what Dracula should’ve known about soil science. What exactly is in his boxes?
Layla McCay, MC of the world-famous story sleuthing show Perfect Liars Club, looks beyond blood with an epicurean analysis of appetites in Dracula
Imperial College London PhD student in immunology and Genuine Romanian Alina Paduraru, complaining about Daddy Dracula’s immigration status and questionable table manners
Jess Hindes has a PhD in Victorian literature – she’ll be talking about Mina Barker’s secretarial skills and the idea of an administrator-heroine
Becky Littlechilds on the role of sacralisation and ecclesiastical law in Dracula specifically and vampiric law more generally
Doors are 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Please note this is earlier than Books Showoff 2016-17.
