Bogost on the Snowpocalypse

External News Details

"On the one hand, it heightens our anxiety, culturing an environment of fear in which we become willing to give up all rights in exchange for the removal of that fear, no matter the cost," said Ian Bogost, professor in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication, on the parallels between Atlanta's post-storm chaos and The Walking Dead. “But on the other hand, premediation also helps us rehearse those actions, to become acclimated to the idea of apocalypse so that we might behave more rationally and productively in the face of real chaos."  Source:  The Atlantic, January 30, 2013
