Vampires at PCA 2009

Jessica's got a write-up of

PCA session 2059 The Vampire in Literature, Culture, & Film IV: The Sookie Stackhouse Novels (Thursday April 9, 10:00 A.M. – 11:30 A.M.)

―The Vampire Rises . . . Again: True Blood and the Sookie Stackhouse Novels
By Nicole Burkholder-Mosco, Lock Haven University

―Shades of Bromance between Vamps and Weres: Homoerotics and the Trafficking of Women in Sookie Stackhouse and Twilight
By Jennifer Moskowitz, Morningside College

―Casting a Reflection: Vampire as Metaphor for the Changing American Society in Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse Series
By Eden Leone, Bowling Green State University

The papers weren't about romance, but Jessica mentions that the romance genre was referred to (unfortunately in a less than complimentary way).
