In 2004, the first (and only, it was assumed at the time) Slayage Conference on Buffy the Vampire Slayer was held in Nashville, Tennessee, an event hosted by Middle Tennessee State University and organized by David Lavery and Rhonda V. Wilcox. Interest in meeting again was so high that the conference became a biennial gathering of scholars and other enthusiasts. Today, the Slayage Conference on the Whedonverses has convened at Gordon College, Barnesville, Georgia (2006); Henderson State University, Arkadelphia, Arkansas (2008); Flagler College, St. Augustine, Florida (2010); the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia (2012); and California State University-Sacramento (2014).
This conference, hosted for the very first time in Europe, is dedicated to the imaginative universe(s) of Joss Whedon and will explore all and any aspect of Whedon's television and web texts (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Dollhouse, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.); his films (Serenity, The Cabin in the Woods, Marvel's The Avengers, Much Ado About Nothing, The Avengers: Age of Ultron); his comics (e.g. Fray; Astonishing X-Men; Runaways; Sugarshock!; Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight, Nine, and Ten; Angel: After the Fall; Angel & Faith Season Nine and Ten); or any element of the work of Whedon and his collaborators.
Booking is essential to attend this event.
