More Info

"Zombies in the Academy" taps into the current popular fascination with zombies and brings together scholars from a range of fields, including cultural and communication studies, sociology, film studies, and education, to give a critical account of the political, cultural, and pedagogical state of the university through the metaphor of zombiedom. The contributions to this volume argue that the increasing corporatization of the academy--an environment emphasizing publication, narrow research, and the vulnerability of the tenure system-- is creating a crisis in higher education best understood through the language of zombie culture--the undead, contagion, and plague, among others. "Zombies in the Academy "presents essays from a variety of scholars and creative writers who present an engaging and entertaining appeal for serious recognition of the conditions of contemporary humanities teaching, culture, and labor practices.
