All Consuming: The History of Zombies and Anxiety in American Culture

Tue, Jun 14 at 7:30 p.m.   |   90 minutes


Zombies are more popular than ever and like a post-apocalyptic hellscape, they're taking over the world. In this session, we will discuss the historical fears that brought this creature into the public mind and what it grew to represent in popular culture. The monster has changed dramatically over time, but what lies behind it has always been the same: the social anxieties eating us from inside, never sleeping, never stopping, just feeding.

What is Think Olio?


Think Olio is here to put the liberation back into the liberal arts.

Classically, the liberal arts, were the education considered essential for a free person to take an active part in civic life. To counter a humanities that has been institutionalized and dehumanized we infuse critical thinking, openness, playfulness, and compassion into our learning experience.
