Hi Luke, thanks for your summing up of the Twitter chat. I think I’m going to miss them! They certainly are fast and furious but you’ve done a good job in sorting out the threads and highlighting posts. I have to admit right here that while Jane Austen is my all time favourite author I thought Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was a hoot. You’re right to say it may not last – the whole zombies thing may be a passing fad. But it’s a great example of pop culture, homing in on part of the zeitgeist and subverting “high” culture with an amusing twist. Whether it lasts or not it was fun at the time, and to me that lies at the heart of “pop culture”.
