Interest in zombies is booming across campuses. International Relations (IR) scholars have likewise begun to pay attention to the undead, as the zombie invasion scenario-envisioned in a variety of movies, television shows, and books-brings to bear many of the key issues and controversies of international relations theory. Here I provide some concrete suggestions for incorporating zombies into undergraduate classes. Drawing from a leading book in this genre (World War Z), I sketch out some of the ways that the zombie wars can be applied to key issues taught in introductory-level IR classes. I then provide specific suggestions to incorporating these insights into the classroom, including discussion guides and simple role-playing exercises. © 2012 International Studies Association.
