Dr. Joseph Laycock


Dr Joseph P. Laycock, Phd:  Joseph Laycock holds a PhD in religious studies from Boston University and is the author of Vampires Today: The Truth About Modern Vampirism, as well as several more research papers on real Vamp(i)yres as an identity group, as well as the Otherkin Community.

“I first began studying religion at Hampshire College where my senior year was spent writing a thesis on the spiritual paths of my fellow college students. Hampshire was home to neo-Trancendentalists, Pagans, Thelemites, and more. My advisor prophesied that I would become “a wandering anthropologist of the occult.” I have since been compared to Fox Mulder of the X-Files, although I prefer to think of myself as Twin Peaks’ Dale Cooper (He had a more pleasant disposition). I went on to receive a Master of Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School. While at Harvard, I enrolled in the Program in Religion and Secondary Education. This led to a three-year career teaching history to at-risk high school students–first in Indianapolis and then in Atlanta. However, I kept one foot in academia and continued to produce independent scholarship. I believe strongly in independent scholarship. It was in Atlanta that I met the real vampire community. This led to a conference paper, then a journal article, then another conference paper, and finally a book. Because of this work, I am often asked if I am a vampire myself. I am not. However, I am exceedingly grateful to my contacts. It took a leap of faith to grant me entree into their world and I hope that my book helps to foster understanding about this community and what it means. “
