Modern Anxieties and Post-Apocalyptic Landscapes

 Attend

Zombies. Outbreaks. Warfare. Environmental cataclysm. Sometimes all of the above. In recent years, post-apocalypses have become all the rage. But why? Why are we so interested as a culture in exploring the end of Western civilization in the 21st century? How do the post-apocalypses we create reflect real fears and anxieties in our own time? In this panel, we'll explore the link between post-apocalyptic fiction and worlds and modern events.
