Event Description

Have you noticed that our monsters are creeping closer to us? That vampires attend high school (constantly), that werewolves seduce us with their moral anguish (as much as their glamorous hunky good looks)? But what about zombies? Does narrowing the gap, as TV series IZombie does, humanize zombies or recognize our own monstrosity? Should we be forgiving or horrified? This panel will investigate the politics and passions of zombie creep today.
