The Undead as Sustainable (Academic) Resource

“ZOMBIES are a value stock. They are wordless and oozing and brain dead, but they’re an ever-expanding market with no glass ceiling,” writes Chuck Closterman for The New York Times. Thanks in part to the commodification of the zombie and vampire, the undead prove rich fodder for the academic as well. Papers that explore the undead (in any manifestation) as cultural, ecological, political, or, of course, commoditized figure are welcome. Please send abstracts of around 500 words to Lynne Simpson at lsimpson@presby.edu by June 1, 2014.
