Generation Z: Zombies, Popular Culture and Educating Youth


Carrington, V and Rowsell, J and Priyadharshini, E and Westrup, R, Generation Z: Zombies, Popular Culture and Educating Youth, Springer Singapore, Singapore, pp. 187. ISBN 978-981-287-932-5 (2016) [Edited Book]


This book argues that the mythic figure of the zombie, so prevalent and powerful in contemporary culture, provides the opportunity to explore certain social models – such as ‘childhood’ and ‘school’, ‘class’ and ‘family’ – that so deeply underpin educational policy and practice as to be rendered invisible. It brings together authors from a range of disciplines to use contemporary zombie typologies – slave, undead, contagion – to examine the responsiveness of everyday practices of schooling such as literacy, curriculum and pedagogy to the new contexts in which children and young people develop their identities, attitudes to learning, and engage with the many publics that make up their everyday worlds.
