Unwinding: Paul Scott hunts the cultural impact of zombies

Paul Scott
science fiction and zombie scholar

Ever wonder why the zombies in film and on TV act the way that they do? Associate Professor of French Paul Scott can provide some insight. Working on a new book while on sabbatical in Crete, Professor Scott sat down with us to talk his soon to be completed book on zombies, his time on sabbatical, and much more on the latest episode of Unwinding.

Unwinding is a podcast that tells the human stories driving the minds and talents of the University of Kansas. In each episode we sit down with KU researchers to chat about what they’re working on, why they’re passionate about it, why it matters, and what makes them tick as humans. The conversation explores the fascinations and motivations that produce new discoveries.

Unwinding is a production by KU’s College of Liberal Arts & Sciences. The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences is the heart of KU. It’s home to more than 50 departments, programs and centers, offering more than 100 majors, minors and certificates. A collaborative and creative community, the College is committed to making the world better through inquiry and research.
