"Buffy" Meets the Academy: Essays on the Episodes and Scripts as Texts
By: Kevin Durand (editor)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
This book presents serious academic scholarship on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". It differs from other works because it uses "Buffy" as a primary text and not as a secondary instrument to explore other concepts. In doing so, it demonstrates that popular culture studies should be approached with the same serious attention paid to classic philosophy and other long-established fields. Essays assemble the "Buffy" canon and explore how "Buffy" treats Shakespeare, comics, power, sisterhood, apocalyptic revisionism, folklore, feminism(s), redemption, patriarchy, identity and education.
Kevin K. Durand is an associate professor of philosophy at Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. He has published widely in several areas of philosophy, religion, ethics, and popular culture studies.
