The Arizona Republic recently called on RMU's A.J. Grant, head of the Department of English Studies and Communication Skills, for this article about HBO's new show "True Blood." Grant is an expert on the role that vampires have played in popular culture, and his research was the subject of an article in the Fall 2007 issue of Foundations magazine. (Which you can read here as a PDF.)
So if you want to talk vampires, A.J. is your man. And don't worry -- he doesn't bite.
