"The Walking Dead" and the Reinvigoration of the Zombie Apocalypse

Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel "The Walking Dead" rewrote the zombie apocalypse by focusing upon what happens AFTER the dust settles, particularly how survivors struggle to maintain their history, culture, kinship, and values. This panel will entertain any cultural, formal, or critical analyses of the graphic novel or its television adaptation, and is an approved special session for the 2013 meetings of the Pacific & Ancient Modern Languages Association (PAMLA) in San Diego.

Please send contact information and abstracts of no more than 500 words to the following email address by April 15: ahowe@lasierra.edu
