Zombies have lurched their way into being the monster of the new millennium. How is it possible that these tragic creatures have climbed out of their quiet, solitary, folkloric graves to become the representatives of our most terrible fears and desires. While the vampire morphed into a representative of individual longing for immortality which transcended the physical restrains of the body the zombie represents a wholly physical earth-bound existence and the fear and/or desire for cathartic destruction.
This talk will look at the origins of the zombie in popular culture and wonder how we can understand the twin notions of the Zombie Apocalypse and the everyday zombie as a source of tremendous creativity and humour.
