Zombie Apocalypse!

May 23/14

Penelope Ironstone’s video on the zombie apocalypse

In response to the question, “What is the most likely cause of a zombie apocalypse?” Dr. Penelope Ironstone created a video essay sketching a cultural history of the figure of the zombie from its origins in Haitian voodoo culture to its current status as a condensation of twenty-first anxieties.

Dr. Ironstone’s video essay on the zombie apocalypse is part of the Research Matters campaign, an initiative of the Council of Ontario Universities designed to bring research conducted at Ontario universities to public attention.
