Zombies Attack on Thursday's Access Utah

Mar 14, 2013

We’ve recently experienced a zombie renaissance and Southern Utah University Assistant Professor Kyle Bishop has a book out called: “American Zombie Gothic: The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of the Walking Dead in Popular Culture.”  He says that zombie movies reflect our cultural anxieties.  Indeed, such movies have addressed the violence of the Vietnam War, fears of mass annihilation during the Cold War, and anxieties related to 9/11. 

We’ll revisit my conversation Kyle Bishop from September on Thursday’s AU.
