  • Zombie Geographies

    In Jeff May’s Zombie Geographies and the Undead City, he starts by explaining that “contemporary zombie films mark a geographical move to large urban areas, bringing the zombie masses to the city and foregroundIng urban fears while containing implicit messages about social difference and otherness”(May 286).

A city would not be a place that I would chose to go if I was trying to survive an apocalypse. I have had the opportunity to live in more suburban areas such as Rochester Michigan, rural areas such as Monclova Township in Ohio, and the extreme urban area of Tokyo, Japan. When comparing these three I would definitely not want to live in a urban area. Tokyo has a population of 13 million with a density of 6,000 people per square kilometer. Rochester Michigan has a population of 13 thousand people. This is extremely low compared to Tokyo. Personally, I feel as though a city or urban would have many more zombies in a compact area than in a rural area. While I lived in Tokyo, I experienced the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011. This event reminds me of many of the zombie apocalypse that we have read about in this class so far. For example, for hours after the earthquake, phone towers were down and not working. Panic was circling my school and all forms of public transportation were…
