This is an absolutely fascinating discussion! Enjoying it immensely.



Great but lacks a retrospective approach

I am fifteen, taking AP World History in DeBakey HSHP and have a 4.2 (Look up this high school; I dare you), From the external sources I've collected in the first two weeks of studying for that class, playing video games for many years, and having a zombie film collection which spans from the black-and-whites to Zombieland, I tell all of you that the people who 'analyze' the impact of zombies in society and NOT IN LITERATURE do this to appease mainstream focus on this topic. However, just because there is no retrospective study and the guys who do this aren't hardcore zombie fanatics such as myself doesn't mean I dislike the course. I appreciate the fact that they make an effort to spread the deepening meanings and effects of zombies in society albeit rudimentary at best. Just do all of yourselves a favor and look up Sumerian writing and Arabian culture for more information regarding zombies. The sad thing is many of you won't do this and the few individuals who do will realize that the brief investigation they have done far exceeds the one present in this course.
