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 ( The submission deadline is May 15, 2014.
