  摘要 This paper addresses the representation of authorship and history writing in the visual language of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, an American TV show whose vibrant afterlife in unauthorized fan fiction has caused much discussion of the limits and possibilities of shared authorship and the appropriation of intellectual property. The project points at similar tensions between authoritative and unauthorized writing within the canonical text. Focusing on the insistent visual presence of “ancient” bodies of knowledge – leather bound books and black-letter print records – in this late modern television program, this paper will read BtVS as a show about history writing – more precisely, a show that suggests the tasks of vamping and slaying as historicist writing projects battling for the power of definition. I ask how the program complicates historicist concepts of authorship from within, and visually interferes with its protagonists' never-ending struggle for defining authoritative, universal master versions of history. Framing my argument in post-colonial theory and especially the critique of historicism, I hope to show that the shape and form of “authoritative” knowledge in this modern vampire fiction can “speak” the politics implied in the ways stories are told.
