Over the past century, the zombie apocalypse has infected our media landscape with ever-mutating forms that horrify and terrify the humans who encounter the walking dead. Join Kate Russell as she examines the history of zombies as they have evolved from the enslaved living dead of Haitian folklore into the groaning, mindless flesh-eater of western popular culture. The lecture will be followed by a screening of the horror-comedy classic, Shaun of the Dead.

  • Lecture by Kate Russell, PhD Candidate, Cinema Studies
  • Screening of Shaun of the Dead
