The Search for Moral Personhood in the Zombie Apocalypse

Have you thought about the stance you will take when the zombies come? An exploration of the fictional world in the popular television show The Walking Dead, reveals several ethical questions, the most pressing of which is, "how do we define moral personhood?" In this lecture, Ana will share how wholesome binge watching led to a master's thesis in Zombethics and several unanswered questions about what it means to be a "person".
