FiRC Students Appreciate the Analysis of the Zombie Apocalypse

NOVA's own zombie specialist and English language and literature instructor Ms. Ashley Whitrock dropped in on FiRC students on Friday November 18th. In a presentation that was both whimsical and formal, FiRC students had the opportunity to trace the development of a popular literary and cinematic trope, from its inception as Haitian slave folklore, all the way to the contemporary writing of American authors, such as Max Brooks. Ms. Whitrock demonstrated to FiRC students that no subject matter is outside the scope of academic inquiry. Students considered their own knowledge and analytical propensity for tracing the development of popular culture using the tools provided by their research and writing related classes at NOVA.
