Interdisciplinary Approaches to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse

The sheer volume of zombies in popular culture and the degree to which the zombie metaphor has spread to the mainstream begs the question, how would you survive a zombie apocalypse? This was the tongue-in-cheek approach that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) did to help people think about disaster preparedness.

Preparing for the emergency scenario belies what it would take to deal with the concomitant collapse of civilization. The attraction of the zombie metaphor is that it asks people to confront what society would be without government, emergency services, military, or commerce. It also suggests that in order for civilization to survive it will need to rely on multiple disciplines working together. To explore how to survive in a post-apocalyptic world is the theme of our first interdisciplinary conference.

Windsor Yearbook of Access to Justice

Consistent with its history and mandate and in light of previous suggestions by SSHRC, the Yearbook has sought to ensure that published articles move beyond doctrinal analysis of law. While analysis of legal texts and developments in legal interpretation are by no means eschewed, the Editors acknowledged the extraordinary wealth of scholarship about access to justice (rather than access to legal institutions) in the discourses of anthropology, philosophy, social history, classics and literary criticism. The Editors intend to continue efforts to tap the potential of such scholarship for the Yearbook and value papers that draw upon social science and other non-doctrinal sources of legal scholarship.
