Undead in the West II: They Just Keep Coming (publication)

The frontier has long been framed as a landscape of life and death, but few scholarly works have ventured into the realm where the two become one, to explore portrayals of the Undead in the West – the zombies, vampires, mummies, and others that have lumbered, crept, shambled, and swooped into the Western from other genres. This sub-genre, while largely a post-1990 phenomenon, traces it roots to much deeper hybrid traditions of Westerns and horror or science fiction, and yet, also shows ties to the recent Western renaissance.

Synapsis (European School for Comparative Studies)

For some time now, philosophers, sociologists and neuroscientists have started to look once again at the world of emotions and passions to try and understand the mechanisms behind them. The development of this field of inquiry bears witness to a renewed fascination for human behaviour. Many disciplines seem to be characterised these days by this 'affective turn', which has led to fresh attention to the nature of artistic and literary expression, and for its capacity to illustrate the physical and ethical dimensions of feeling.
