Zombies, Postmodernism and Art - Furman University Talk

Expanding on a talk I gave last year called Pentecost for the Zombie Apocalypse, I discuss the meaning of the zombie and the monster in general as a portent of cultural patterns.

By examining the traditional vision of the world and by exploring ancient stories. I trace a parallel to the development of modern art and contemporary culture through contemporary authors such as Jacques Derrida and John Vervaeke's recent book, "Zombies in Western Culture".

Finally I explore the positive place of the monster in the figure of St-Christopher.

This conference was given at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina on March 15th, 2017.
