Heads Up (HUM415)

No class 4/16. Instead watch “15 Million Merits”, an episode of the series Black Mirror. You can find it all over the place: vimeo, youtube, netflix, dailymotion.

For Thursday 4/9: Consider the question of why zombies are so pervasive today. What is it about this figure and the scenarios it implies that captures our collective fascination? You might look over the Zimbardo article in the reader.

We will screen and analyze a scene from Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead. This will be a graded assignment.
