April 7, 2014

“Finally the (concierge) says, ‘well OK, I found a place for you to go,’” Mabry said. “We followed him through this beautiful lobby, we followed him out the back door, down an alley way into this strange place, knocked on a door that looked like a speakeasy. There was this long hallway with bare bulbs everywhere. It ended up, we stayed in these little cubicles for the night. These cells. There was no television. There was just a bed. It was clean but that’s about all you can say.”

New APSU Spanish class tackles vampires and zombies

April 3, 2014

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – The last few years have been rough for Spain. The unemployment rate is close to 30 percent, which has led to daily protests and civil unrest in that European nation. For some scholars, this turmoil helps explain the sudden popularity of vampire and zombie literature in that country.

“Spain is in shambles,” Dr. Osvaldo Di Paolo, Austin Peay State University associate professor of Spanish, said. “From 2008, the world crisis has hit them hard. When you read a novel from Spain about a zombie apocalypse, it makes you feel like this is happening. You feel the same destruction of society in every aspect.”
