Stages Beyond Life: The Undead and Culture

PAMLA Conference, Nov. 1-3, 2013 in San Diego

Call for Presentations/Papers

Defying standard constructions of aging and life, the undead have forcefully risen in popular literature and media. Undead culture targets the pillars of society—identity, family, religion, and government—simultaneously causing them to lose and acquire value. This session investigates the significance of the undead within culture, literature, and philosophy.
