Clarksville, TN – The last few years have been rough for Spain. The unemployment rate is close to 30 percent, which has led to daily protests and civil unrest in that European nation. For some scholars, this turmoil helps explain the sudden popularity of vampire and zombie literature in that country.
“Spain is in shambles,” Dr. Osvaldo Di Paolo, Austin Peay State University associate professor of Spanish, said. “From 2008, the world crisis has hit them hard. When you read a novel from Spain about a zombie apocalypse, it makes you feel like this is happening. You feel the same destruction of society in every aspect.”
Clarksville, TN – “It would take a perfect storm to achieve a pandemic of zombie apocalypse proportion,” Dr. Amy Thompson, Austin Peay State University associate professor of biology, said during a recent talk at the Nashville Comic Con event.
Although a zombie apocalypse is purely fictional, she does think the recent zombie craze offers an opportunity to engage students in important, real-life topics, such as the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.
Clarksville, TN – Dr. Antonio Thompson, Austin Peay State University associate professor of history, sat in his office after final exams last December, contemplating the moral implications of killing a zombie.
“If it’s caused by a virus, then theoretically it could be cured,” he said. “So what’s your legal obligation to zombies? Are they humans, monsters, animals?”
His wife, APSU associate professor of biology Dr. Amy Thompson, was more concerned with how the undead came to take over the world.
