An “Other” Zombie Project: Decolonizing the Undead
Edited by Professor Stephen Shapiro, Giulia Champion and Roxanne Douglas
The editors of this project are interested in developing an interdisciplinary edited collection on perspectives of the zombie figure that focus on non-Anglo-Euro-centric works and theories. We are interested in submissions that re-frame the zombie figure in the humanities and social sciences and/or contest previous understandings of the zombie and its history. These re-framings could be articulated with areas of engagement which include, but are not limited to:
·     Contemporary Environmental Issues
·     Decolonizing Movements, Silenced Pasts and Historical Amnesia
·     (Post-)Colonial Debates
·     The Global South and Non-Western Works
·     (Post-)Feminism
·     Social Justice
·     Debates on “Popular Culture” and de-hierarchization of arts and culture
·     Literature and Visual Studies
·     Disability Studies
·     Migration
·     Pedagogy and Education
300-500 words chapter abstracts, including 5 to 10 keywords, are due by the 31stMay 2019and full chapter submissions will due November/December 2019.
The following information should accompany any submission:
·      Author’s title, name, affiliation and position
·      A brief biography (up to 200 words)
·      Permissions for any images used
