LidiyaDawn Posted November 7, 2011 Share Posted November 7, 2011 article link John Edgar Browning studies real vampires. These are not the immortal, predatory shapeshifters of legend and lore, but modern people who believe that they need to be psychically or physically nourished by blood or energy drawn from other humans. Browning, 31, a tall, soft-spoken man with an accent that indicates his Tennessee roots, is a Ph.D. student and Arthur A. Schomburg Fellow in the University at Buffalo's Transnational Studies Department. Browning arrived in Buffalo in August after spending several years at Louisiana State University. There, he researched the vampire subculture of New Orleans, which is now the topic of his doctoral dissertation. (more at the above link) This might be just about as far away from the topic of home education as a person can get :laugh: I just thought this was interesting when it came my way ~ I've heard tell of the vampire subculture before, but mostly through random internet chatter. This guy is a university PHD fella who is doing all sorts of research on this. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
