Zombies, Seances, and the Unrestful Dead: Art after the Pandemic
March 25, 2021 @ 7:00 pm-8:30 pmFree
Elizabeth Outka is the author of “Viral Modernism: The Influenza Pandemic and Interwar Literature,” a work about literary and artistic responses to the early 20th century Flu Pandemic and the ways in which it shaped modern culture.
In her talk she will discuss pandemics featured in art and literature, connecting 1918 to 2020 and focusing on the flu’s surprising connection to zombies, spiritualism, and poems like T. S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land.”
