"Zombies in the Academy" taps into the current popular fascination with zombies and brings together scholars from a range of fields, including cultural and communication studies, sociology, film studies, and education, to give a critical account of the political, cultural, and pedagogical state of the university through the metaphor of zombiedom. The contributions to this volume argue that the increasing corporatization of the academy an environment emphasizing publication, narrow research, and the vulnerability of the tenure system is creating a crisis in higher education best understood through the language of zombie culture the undead, contagion, and plague, among others. "Zombies in the Academy "presents essays from a variety of scholars and creative writers who present an engaging and entertaining appeal for serious recognition of the conditions of contemporary humanities teaching, culture, and labor practices."
