The University of Baltimore is now offering a course on zombie studies, and man, do I ever wish I could attend. The course, dubbed “Zombie 101”, promises to prepare its students for life after the zombie apocalypse, and in doing so also hopes to teach them about society, literature, and mass media. Instead of essays, students write horror movie scripts and create storyboards. I’m so jealous of people who get to take this class. Arnold Blumberg, author of Zombiemania and teacher of the course, has this to say about it:
“We’re going to be dealing with some of the truly disgusting stuff that’s been done in horror over the years. I want to reinforce the degree to which this material can be found offensive by a lot of people. This is not fluffy bunny cartoon stuff. Bunnies might show up, but they’d probably be torn to pieces.”
Now excuse me while I seethe with jealousy at the students who get to take this.
