Elizabeth Miller:

Publications, Documentaries, Papers, Media, etc.

The following is a list of my published (or soon to be published) works, a list of papers that I have given at conferences, and other related activities (documentaries, media interviews, etc). I am including only material on Dracula/Gothic literature since 1994. [Before that, my scholarly work - including several books and dozens of articles and reviews - was in the field of Newfoundland literature.]
