Looking at Teen Paranormal Romance books, shows, and movies, and particularly at how they present ideas of gender performance and relationship models. (Here's the inaugural post, where I lay out what the plan basically is. Highlights so far include this particularly cogent defense of (at least some aspects of) Twilight, and this epic takedown of Hush, Hush.) And today, we've started a new, 144-week-long project: watching and discussing each and every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. MeFi bonus: named via AskMe (thanks again, argonauta)!
Our new web series provides tips on surviving the paranormal. Think "This Old House" meets a zombie apocalypse survival guide. The first episode involves zombies. Future episodes involve ESP, evil robots, vampires, campground slashers, and more. And we're having a contest to help spread the word. Enjoy.
