52-2725J Zombies in Popular Media
This course explores the history, significance, and representation of the zombie as a figure in horror and fantasy texts. Instruction follows an intense schedule, using critical theory and source media (literature, comics, and films) to spur discussion and exploration of the figure’s many incarnations. Daily assignments focus on reflection and commentary, while final projects foster thoughtful connections between student disciplines and the figure of the zombie.
*In 2012, this course will meet face-to-face during J-session, and then students will continue working and meeting online during Spring semester in order to receive the 3 credits. For more information, contact the instructor.
