1) What research question or questions motivate each study—what issue is it an effort to resolve? Each article seems to believe that zombies and witches are real, not just mythical creatures. Each article seems to attempt to resolve the issue as to what/who qualifies as a zombie. However, each article has different research questions that motivate the study. For example, the first article, “Witches and Zombies” has three questions/angles that it uses to prove South African citizens’ views and perspectives on zombies and witches. The angles include: “namely in terms of generic discourses as contained in descriptions about their features and in stories about events that purportedly happened in the past; actual accusations of zombie keeping; and personal experiences attesting to the subjective reality of zombies. By the author taking these three approaches/angles, he is attempting to prove that there isn’t only one view regarding zombies and witches. Instead, the author proves that people have very different perspectives.
