Buffy Disciplines

Even though I taped most of its episode on VHS (remember video cassettes, kids?), I was never really a huge Buffy fan. I just used it for my vampire fix.

Nonetheless, it's impressive to see what an incredible body of academia it's generated.

David Lavery's " 'I Wrote My Thesis on You!': Buffy Studies as an Academic Cult" for Slayage: The Online International Journal of Buffy Studies 13-14 (October 2004), managed to isolate fifty "disciplines, methods, and/or approaches" in the field.

Imagine how this could be applied to vampirology itself. The mind boggles.

Anyway, if you're interested, check out the rest of the journal's articles via its archive.
