Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse, a Natural Sciences and Mathematics Colloquium
The NS&M Colloquium “Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse” was co-presented by Steve Reese (class of 2012), Dr. Leah Eller (Chemistry) and Dr. Scott Mirabile (Psychology). Reese, Eller, and Mirabile presented scholarly approaches to understanding the potential biology behind an infectious disease capable of producing zombie-like symptoms, the chemistry of surviving on limited resources in limited space, and the interpersonal dynamics and psychological consequences of long-term isolation and stress in an unsafe environment. This room-packing presentation has since been repeated in multiple venues with additional presenters from other academic fields. Dr. Mirabile has since been contracted to contribute to a scholarly text on the zombie apocalypse (publication date pending).
