PostSubject: My Final Speech   23rd November 2012, 1:33 pm

Hello everyone!!

I have my final speech for the semester due on Wednesday and I'll be spending time this weekend working on it. I was wondering if I could get some help. I don't have the assignment sheet with me seeing as how that is down at my apartment at school and I'm currently at my parent's house.

It's supposed to be a informative speech. I decided to be a little comical with mine and inform my class about the chance of a zombie apocalypse. I already have this approved by my professor, he thinks it'll be hilarious. And, I have a lot to live up to. Apparently my speech was the best speech in the class last time...

So, anyone know of some sources I could use? I already know I could look up quotes from the Zombie Survival Guide and maybe World War Z. But, just curious if anyone else has anything in mind.

Also, if you need more information, I'll get it to you when I get home in the next two hours.

Thanks!

Can you post it somehow on here when you're done with it? I really want to read it!

You could probably use quotes from Zombieland too!

Being a zombie apocalypse fan, I think the best shows and movies are The Walking Dead and of course Resident Evil.

Although the Walking Dead I think has the best story line, because it can actually happen the way they had explained.

Send me PM and I can help you if you want to

I'm actually watching the first episode of the Walking Dead at the moment.
I've seen it all and can't wait for this Sunday's episode!

So, I remembered that I need five sources. So far I have four suggested:
Walking Dead, Zombie Land, World War Z, and Zombie Survival Guide.

Oh! I have the perfect thing as a quick reference!

The U.S. military (no idea what division) recently prepared for an emergency-related drill by including zombies and the idea of a zombie apocalypse.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/29/zombie-apocalypse-trainining-military-halo-corp-_n_2036996.html

Also, the zombie has a longer cultural history than people usually give it credit for. This book....

Race, Oppression and the Zombie : Essays on Cross-Cultural Appropriations of the Caribbean Tradition

discusses the cultural roots of the zombie in Haitian folklore and how it developed into (American) culture in movies, media, etc.

Another book.... Zombie Culture: Autopsies of the Living Dead... does a similar historiography of the zombie. Here are few others that examine the zombie culture.

Generation Zombie: Essays on the Living Dead in Modern Culture
American Zombie Gothic: the rise and fall (and rise) of the walking dead in popular culture
Race, Oppression and the Zombie: Essays on Cross-Cultural Appropriations of the Caribbean Tradition
