Description

They’re everywhere. Howling or moaning their way through movies and across television screens. Wherever they are, they’re always hunting – us. Where did these ideas originate, and what’s the underlying grain of truth, if any, to zombies? Join Cécile Accilien, Ph.D., as she shares the story of what we’ve come to call zombies. She’ll also discuss what it might reveal about our culture that we’re so smitten with them. Taking a closer look at the undead just might help us understand the living. Dr. Accilien is an author, presenter, Associate Professor of Haitian Studies and Director of the Institute of Haitian Studies at the University of Kansas.

The Smoky Hill Museum hosts this free presentation on Thursday April 4, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. To accommodate a larger crowd, the presentation will be held at the First United Methodist Church's Fellowship Hall, 122 N Eighth St, just across Iron Ave. from the Museum. 

    The Smoky Hill Museum is a nationally accredited history museum, in the heart of downtown Salina, Kansas. This FREE museum is open Tuesday-Friday 12-6 and Saturday 10-5. Also, be sure to stop by the Museum Store for a wide variety of regional and Kansas products, local artwork and gifts for all ages.

For needed accommodations, please call Nona Miller at 309-5776 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.  Every effort will be made to accommodate known disabilities. For material or speech access, please call at least 5 working days prior to the event.
