Vampires and Poltergeists

Richard Sugg investigates whether vampires and poltergeists may in some sense be real. Myths about vampires and poltergeists can be found in cultures around the world, whilst accounts of spooky phenomenon still appear to this day. Are these things just a figment of people’s over-active imaginations? Richard scrutinises a series of tales to show how modern psychology and physics can help to explain the way they make their presence felt.

This lecture was one of a series recorded at a workshop on Literary Criticism and the Fantastic, held at Palace Green Library as part of the exhibition, Robot!.
