Course is one of several that analyzes fads, niches in pop culture

“Is a living, breathing human being qualified to teach a college course about the undead?

For Baltimore professor Arnold Blumberg, the answer is yes.

Blumberg, 39, is currently teaching a curious course titled “Media Genres: Zombies,” in which his roughly 45 students feast on books, comics and 16 zombie films, including the 1932 Bela Lugosi classic “White Zombie,” which Blumberg regards as “filled with atmosphere and very creepy.”
