Dawn of the Dead: Roundtable Discussion

Listen to a free talk on Romero's classic zombie film

On 26 May, as part of Birkbeck Arts Week (23-28 May), academics shared their thoughts on George A. Romero's zombie horror classic, Dawn of the Dead (1978). The roundtable discussion was introduced by Dr Amber Jacobs (Psychosocial Studies) and included four speakers: Mark Fisher (Cultural Studies and Music Culture, Goldsmiths) Gordon Hon (Artist and Lecturer in Visual Culture, Winchester School of Art), Paul Myerscough (Senior Editor at the London Review of Books) and Dr Catherine Grant (Senior Lecturer in Film from Sussex University). The event was part of a series entitled ‘Intrusions: Vampires, Strangers and Monstrous Others’, convened by the Urban Studies group of the Raphael Samuel History Centre (link via Ballardian). [Listen]
