Beyond Life: The Rise of Undead Culture

Call for Papers for a session at the 2014 PAMLA Conference in Riverside, California (Oct. 31-Nov. 2, 2014).

The undead have forcefully risen in popular literature and media and targeted the pillars of society—identity, family, religion, and government. Normal life simultaneously loses and acquires value vis-à-vis threats from the undead. This session investigates the significance of the undead within culture, literature, and philosophy.

Please submit paper proposals on undead culture through the PAMLA website (www.pamla.org). The submission deadline is May 15, 2014.

If you have any questions about the panel or conference, please contact me at roland_finger@cuesta.edu.
