Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - A fitting symposium at UMD Thursday night as we creep closer to Halloween.

From literary characterization to infectious disease, six professors from several departments explored the world of Zombies.

The lecture looking at science, art, psychology, history and ethics of the creatures drew more students than any other regular class!

Attendees learned Zombies often serve as a euphemism for aspects of human condition too unpleasant to confront more directly.

The event was so packed and popular, students stood outside the hall listening to the presentation.
