ZombieLaw is a blog about Zombies in law and politics. I am primarily interested in Zombies in the Federal Courts but this blog will also refer to Zombies in State Courts and in news articles (history and current events). I am particularly interested in zombies as a form of political consciousness and cultural metaphor. But this blog is a bit of a gallimaufry of “zombie” appearance in modern language. I consider it a study of (or hunt for) real life zombies. Zombies are real in the same way Santa Claus is real, or the electron is real, or autism is real, they are words, constructions of language that serve language functions and we can study how they are used in language (with social, cultural and cognitive implications).
A recent version of my working theories can be read at ZombieLaw post entitled “Critical Zombie Theory – cognitive linguistics and construction of the non-creative”
AND a recent version of some empirical data can be read at ZombieLaw post entitled “Zombies in the Federal Courts: Medications, Corporations and Criminals”
AND here is a synopsis of the “walking dead” cases: “Walking Dead” in the Federal Courts
AND here is a synopsis of the “undead” cases: “Undead” in the Federal Courts
AND here is a synopsis of the “feeling zombie-like” cases: Zombie Gwyneth Paltrow: postpartum feeling zombie-like
