  Just in time for Halloween, a discussion planned near Detroit's Wayne State University will inform those on either side of undead debate.

  Wayne State Assistant English Professor Chera Kee brings her zombie wisdom Tuesday to the Knowledge on Tap speaker series. She'll present The History, Lore and Growth of Zombie Culture at The Whitney's Ghost Bar.

  Organizers say Kee has done extensive research into zombie lore, from its Haitian origins to the modern-day fascination in the United States.

  Knowledge on Tap consists of bimonthly events at bars and restaurants around campus. The free and public sessions feature a university faculty member holding court on a topic of their choice and include audience interaction.
