The Walking Dead: Un estudio comunitario

Main Article Content

Gerardo Rodríguez-Salas

Resumen

El presente artículo aplica teorías comunitarias post-fenomenológicas a la serie de AMT The Walking Dead (2010-), con referencias ocasionales a la novela gráfica original (Robert Kirkman, 2003) y a las dos webseries dirigidas por Greg Nicotero (2011 y 2012). Siguiendo a Jean-Luc Nancy y Maurice Blanchot, pretendemos conectar la metáfora zombi con nociones comunitarias, partiendo del contraste entre comunidades operativas —que buscan la inmanencia de la comunión de sus miembros y se sustancian en los tropos esencialistas de la nación, la sangre y la raza— y comunidades inoperativas —que rechazan la inmanencia esencialista, y se caracterizan por la trans-inmanencia, i.e. conectan con algo o alguien externo, y a la vez parte constituyente de nuestro ser. Aspectos como el secreto blanchotiano, la auto-inmunidad, la auto-destrucción o el contagio son centrales para entender el vínculo entre la metáfora zombi y la teoría comunitaria. El constante diálogo comunitario demuestra ser altamente ilustrativo.
