CFP for Beyond Life: The Rise of Undead Culture

Please submit proposals on the undead and culture for the Beyond Life panel at the 2014 PAMLA Conference, held at the Riverside Convention Center, California, Friday, October 31 - Sunday, November 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.

Proposal Deadline: May 15, 2014
