The walking dead have always been with us, from our earliest stories to the stories we're going to be telling ourselves tomorrow. In this CU on the Weekend class, Stephen Graham-Jones, professor of English, will address why we are so fascinated with and compelled to experience zombie stories. Through lecture and discussion, images and video clips, participants will trace the zombie as it shambles through the ages, and finally, for better or for worse, catches up with us.
CU on the Weekend is a series of one-day, Saturday classes that are free and open to the public. Offered by the Office for University Outreach, the classes are led by some of CU-Boulder’s best faculty, and the events allow participants to delve deeper in the faculty members’ unique expertise and interests. CU on the Weekend classes are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
