Motives of Security in The Walking Dead. Social Security Discourses in One of the Most Successful Series of Recent Times

Philipp Reichenbach

Languages: German

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.6.446

Researchers are discussing whether the revival of zombie genre was inevitable, or whether the new wave of success after the genres' death in the 1990's could be linked to the first shock of Western Civilization in the 21st century, September 11, 2001. In this paper, I take a closer look at the television series The Walking Dead and the theme ‘security’ as one of the potential factors for its success. The five security motives (1) insecure home, (2) human security risk, (3) search for stability, (4) endangered democracy, and (5) critical infrastructures and work on prevention, emphasize that 'security' and the constant search for it is a crucial, early characteristic of The Walking Dead. The characters in the series face a permanent threat and must try to transform this insecurity into (temporary) security, i.e. survival.

From the Visual Defence of Rights to the Visual Representation of a Fundamental Value

Frank Zeiler

Languages: German

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.5.433

In the 1760s, most inhabitants of the North American colonies which were to become the United States considered liberty as an inherited right that had to be defended within the frame-work of the British constitution against unwarranted intrusions by the government in London. To visualize this struggle in political prints, they made use of motifs like the Roman goddess Libertas and the cap of liberty, both of which they knew from corresponding English prints. Following the Declaration of Independence, these motifs were increasingly turned into attributes of a new political order built on liberty. This transformation led to a mélange of changes and continuities in the iconography of liberty which this article seeks to demonstrate by examining examples of relevant images from the first decades of independence.
