This edited collection brings together an introduction and 13 original scholarly essays on AMC’s The Walking Dead. The essays in the first section address the pervasive bloodletting of the series: What are the consequences of the series’ unremitting violence? Essays explore violence committed in self-defense, racist violence, mass lawlessness, the violence of law enforcement, the violence of mourning, and the violence of history. The essays in the second section explore an equally urgent question: What does it mean to be human? Several argue that notions of the human must acknowledge the centrality of the body—the fact that we share a “blind corporeality” with the zombie. Others address how the human is closely aligned with language and time, the disappearance of which are represented by the aphasic, timeless zombie. Underlying each essay are the game-changing words of The Walking Dead’s protagonist Rick Grimes to the other survivors: “We’re all infected.” The violence of the zombie is also our violence; their blind drives are also ours. The human characters of The Walking Dead may try to define themselves against the zombies but in the end their bodies harbor the zombie virus: they are the walking dead.

They thought the first day of the zombie outbreak was bad. Tensions rise to an all time high when a new leader takes control of the bus, only to turn that power over to someone far more maniacal. Someone with an agenda that goes beyond survival, an agenda not meant for everyone to survive. And just when you think things can’t get any worse, Noah’s worst case scenario becomes reality. Only two more days until the evacuation center is operational, but will they even be able to last one? The undead masses have multiplied. Running is no longer an option. It’s time to find weapons and fight, not just the bloodthirsty hordes of walking corpses, but each other. Sometimes the destructive tendencies of mankind are too much to endure. Sometimes there’s nothing left to do but watch your last hope go up in flames. Sift through the ashes. Bury those you’ve lost. Mourn what will never be. And find a way to carry on. Alliances are made. Friendships forgotten. Families torn. Another day stolen in a world not meant for the living. But how long can you survive off nothing but adrenaline and hope?

The HIV pandemic has caused serious challenges for the Church as well as for theology. The pandemic has brought enormous human suffering to individuals and has affected families and entire societies. In this context, churches need to listen and to learn, and not least to respond, to thereby mold their own actions and futures. In so doing, this book aims to enable churches to become more HIV and AIDS competent. Vulnerability, Churches, and HIV includes two kinds of contributions. First, researchers present their thoughts about theology, the church, and HIV. A pastoral letter from the bishops of the Church of Sweden provides a second perspective. The letter makes recommendations to decision-making bodies, patent holders, and decision makers in the pharmaceutical industry. The letter also guides parishes and church workers. Contributors include editor Goran Gunner, Musa W. Dube, Susanne Rappmann, Kenneth R. Overberg, Edwina Ward, and the bishops of the Church of Sweden. The book is the first volume in the Church of Sweden Research Series.
