Central Michigan University

Taught by Kelly Murphy, a philosophy and religion faculty member

“Zombies! Movies, television and literature—everybody is talking about the zombie apocalypse. Yet visions of the end of the world aren’t new. [This course] will explore and compare ancient and contemporary visions of the end times. What might these visions tell us about the cultures who produced them, from early Jewish and Christian apocalyptic texts to the more recent focus on brain-eating zombies?”
