Zombies in the Academy Book


Just received notification that the Zombies in the Academy book is slightly delayed, but due to be published in early 2013. This is quite a long time after my first blog post about our chapter, in February 2011!

The book now has a page on the University of Chicago Press site, which shows off quite a funky front page!

The contents look really interesting, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy, although I did notice that Margaret Attwood is now writing a zombie novel which might suggest that zombies have jumped the shark.

If zombies are on the way out, I wonder what will be the next metaphor to go viral?

About digitalscholar

I am a sociologist with an interest in new technology. Previously I’ve worked on a number of projects at Lancaster University and the Open University looking at the use of new technologies and social media by researchers. I was also a social sciences teaching fellow at the foundation centre at Durham University teaching sociology and anthropology. I am now a senior lecturer at the University of West London's Institute for Teaching, Innovation and Learning where I oversee the foundation provision and support retention. I'm sure I'll still be interested in, and occasionally blog about, tech related things. I use this blog to post thoughts about using new technologies in my professional academic life and wider thoughts and links relating to technology more generally.
