Bram Stoker Club

Bram Stoker Club

In 1986 the Bram Stoker Society in Dublin, Ireland, reorganized as a club affiliated with the Philosophical Society of Trinity College, Dublin. Since Bram Stoker, the author of the novel Dracula, was at one time president of the Philosophical Society, the affiliation of the two societies seemed a natural fit.

The inauguration of the club occasioned the opening of the Bram Stoker Archives, which included the Leslie Shepard collection of Bram Stoker first editions, autographed material, related literature, and other memorabilia. Housed in the Graduates Memorial Building at Trinity College, the archives were open to the general public. With the Philosophical Society unable to maintain proper security of the Leslie Shepard collection, the exhibit suffered some disorganization, so Shepard withdrew his materials in 1988, pending availability of a safer permanent venue.

Membership of the Bram Stoker Club, which is open to the general public, involved associate membership of the Philosophical Society. Members receive the club's newsletters and may participate in club activities, including lectures on themes related to Bram Stoker and Irish supernatural literature, the showing of rare Gothic films, and the promoting of public recognition of Bram Stoker and his work.

After the disruption concerning the archives, the Bram Stoker Society reemerged as the parent body of the Bram Stoker Club. The club may be contacted c/o David Lass, Hon. Secretary, Regent House, Trinity College, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
