Bringing Out the Undead:
Reinventing the Zombie in Contemporary Fiction of the Francophone Caribbean.
Lecture by Lucy Swanson.
Friday, May 20, 6:00 p.m. at the Alliance Française.
Lucy Swanson is currently Visiting Assistant Professor of French at Lafayette College. She holds a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania, her dissertation entitled “Bringing Out the Undead: Reinventing the Zombie in Contemporary Fiction of the Francophone Caribbean.”
Her research interests include the literatures of the francophone Caribbean and West Africa, in particular representations of the supernatural, a topic on which she has published a number of articles and book chapters.
She will discuss the origins of the zombies in the context of the slave trade in the Caribbean, and then explain their evolution through to the cannibal zombie we know today.
