HIST 1900A: History of Zombies
Fall 2024 

Instructor: Prof. Mark Anderson

Introduction: Zombies are real. This course explores how this is so, first, by considering zombies in historical context, with a particular focus on Haiti and the American occupation of Haiti. Second, the course explores imaginary zombies since the release of the film White Zombie (1932), tracing their origins, again, to the American occupation of Haiti.

It is important that you complete and keep up with the readings (listed below), which will figure importantly in your grade.
