Figures de l’immortel(le), événement organisé par Sophie Horth, Marie Levesque et Revue Post-scriptum

«Vampirism always never implies something which goes above and beyond the eminent world. The immortality inherent to the figure of the vampire places the creature in a in-between realm, since they live both in and outside society.

This liminal status therefore creates a neutral space, making the vampire a potent figuration of the concept of neutrality. In the same vein, the figure of the vampire challenges ideals of identity, especially in terms of gender and sexuality.»
