Emerging Infectious Literatures and the Zombie Condition [PDF - 370 KB - 5 pages]
J. Verran and X. Reyes

The book club format has enabled expert and nonexpert exploration of infection and epidemiology as encountered in popular literature. This exploration reveals that fiction focusing on apocalyptic disease often uses the zombie as embodiment of infection, as well as an exemplar of current knowledge on emerging disease.
