PhD in...Buffy?

I'm cross-posting this from LJ page because I figure readers here will be interested as well:

There is a three day conference on the academic and philosophical messages and implications of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" this weekend at Henderson State University. Given the amount of academic/serious discssuion I see about Buffy at cons (especially at WisCon), this doesn't surprise me at all. If it were closer and I'd had more notice, I may have even stopped in to check it out. Pretty cool, IMO, and a hell of a tip of the hat to Joss Whedon.

The newspaper article that caught my attention is here. Conference web site is here. Enjoy!
