Amie Doughty Presents Paper at Northeast Popular Culture Association Conference

Amie Doughty, English, presented the paper “Franken-faeries, or the Conflation of Creator and Created in the October Daye and Merry Gentry Series” at the Northeast Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association in Keene, NH on October 22. The paper compares the way in which the creature and his creator Victor Frankenstein are conflated with similar parent-child conflation in the October Day and Merry Gentry urban fantasy series and argues that just as the main characters are created (and recreated) by their parental figures, they become creators themselves and in the process act to recreate their parents.
