I Dream of Zombies: Cinematic Revelations in Apocalypse

Thesis Talk Poster FinalFrom Alice Severs ’15:

Are you fascinated by the undead? Interested in writing a thesis?

The English Majors Committee invites YOU to a reading by Anya Morgan ’14, who will share an excerpt of her work and open the floor to questions afterward.

“In her thesis, Anya examines several iterations of zombie media from Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) to The Walking Dead (2010), unearthing a trajectory of American zombie representation that moves from an exotification of Haitian blackness to a reflection of our own national anxieties about consumerism, non-normative bodies, and epidemic.” Don’t miss out, or we will find you.
