Assef, Jorge. "The zombie epidemic: a hypermodern version of the apocalypse." Lacanian Compass (Nov. 2013)

Abstract: "Jorge Assef, psychoanalyst and head of Cinema and Psychoanalysis at the University of Cordoba, Argentina, presented on a topic ubiquitous in current American popular culture: the zombie. The seminar focused on the zombie’s perpetuation into the hypermodern era (from “Night of the Living Dead” (1968) through to the current “World War Z” and the AMC TV series “The Walking Dead”), examining its manifestations as pandemic and apocalyptic from a psychoanalytic orientation. In light of the them of the upcoming IX Congress of the WAP, A Great Disorder in the Real, in the 21st Century, the zombie reveals that death itself has been contaminated by the laws of nature."
