"This symposium seeks to explore the philosophical underpinnings of stories and images of the undead, which parallel the social, cultural and political concerns of the postmodern era," says Kendra Thompson.
A Call for Papers is hereby issued in the First Annual Academic Symposium and Art Show, April 20, 2013, 1-4 pm, Bossier Arts Council.
"There are many avenues in which this topic can be explored; the ultimate goal is to bridge the gap between pop culture and serious academic research, so have fun with it, but also treat it as you would any other academic opportunity, says Thompson"
"This is an interdisciplinary academic symposium; all research is welcomed and will be considered by a carefully chosen jury made up of professionals from academia, film, theatre and the visual arts. Your proposals should be at least one full paragraph and submitted digitally no later than January 13, 2012."
