CLL 055 - Zombies in Literature, Film, and SocietySemester Hours: 3
This course examines the figure of the zombie in literature, film, and television. The walking dead provide a glimpse into cultural anxieties, particularly those related to race, gender and class. This course examines zombies trans-historically, with investigations into such texts as George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, Richard Matheson’s I am Legend, Max Brooks’, World War Z, Colson Whitehead’s Zone One, and the television series (and its graphic novel progenitor), The Walking Dead. Course includes readings that help us understand why our culture seems to find the living dead so important.
Formerly CLL 151 Studies in Literature, when given as “Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse.”
