Buffy in the Classroom explores the ways in which Buffy the Vampire Slayer is taught through both interdisciplinary and discipline-based approaches. Essays describe how Buffy can be used to explain — and encourage further discussion of — television’s narrative complexity, archetypal characters, morality, feminism, identity, ethics, non-verbal communication, film production, media and culture, censorship, and Shakespeare, among other topics. Jodie Kreider is an academic historian and lecturer in arts, humanities and social sciences at the University of Denver.
