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.

Date: Tuesday, March 4
Time: 4:30 – 5:30 PM
Place: Downey 113

Thesis Theater Production-“A la ronda/To the circle”

a la rondaHave some free time this weekend and an itching for the theatre? This honors thesis production might be for you:

The Madres de Plaza de Mayo is a human rights organization formed by the mothers of those who were disappeared during the last Argentine dictatorship, which held power from 1976 to 1983. In partial fulfillment of her Honors Thesis in Theater, Claire Whitehouse ’14 directs five women in an English-language adaptation of their testimonies, which asks the questions: Where is there a place to mourn in a society that refuses to acknowledge that the dead ever existed? And what is our role as foreigners in watching these women in their 35-year march?

Tickets will be made available on the day of each performance at the box office. Off-campus guests may call the box office at 860-685-3355 after 10am to reserve tickets to be held in their names until fifteen minutes prior to curtain. On-campus guests must pick up their tickets at the box office. There is a two-ticket limit per person for free ticketed events.

Dates: Thursday, February 27 through Saturday, March 1
Time: 8-10 PM each day
Place: Patricelli ’92 Theater
