ARGH! BRAINS! BLOOD! ARGH! ZOMBOSIUM!
A symposium on zombies - 28 October 2011
Locked deep in the bowels of Winchester University a team of deranged (social) scientists from the School of Media and Film have been conducting hideous research into the living dead (clearly ignoring the guidelines of the Faculty of Arts Research Ethics committee). The research has now escaped and we invite colleagues to join us and spread your own diabolical research on Zombies at 'ZOMBOSIUM' - a one day symposium / conference on zombies.
The Zombie virus (if that is what caused them) has spread across the media and now infects film, television, new media (especially web 2.0 and social media), computer and video games, print media (comics and other formats) and literary texts.

The Zombosium is free to attend but delegates need to book their place. For more information please contact Marcus.Leaning@winchester.ac.uk
Please note there is no parking available on campus. If driving you will need to park in town and walk to the campus.

This half-day round table conference is a participatory space for parties with an interest in media and women's issues. It is supported by MeCCSA Women's Media Studies Network and the Mothers' Union. The event is to foster dialogue on mothers' concerns about media coverage and experiences from their engagement with the media. It is to establish or reinvigorate the agenda for teaching, research, advocacy and policy.
