Lightning in a Panel:The American Superhero and the Invention of a Modern Mythology

March 27, 2015 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us for a conversation with veteran comics writers Dennis O’Neil, Paul Levitz, Louise and Walter Simonson, and Larry Hama, as they speak on the origins of superhero stories and the proliferation of this genre into film and television. The writers’ contributions have inspired today’s prominent superhero narratives, including the Batman, G.I. Joe, X-Men and Thor films, and the Arrow TV series. Their works explore the dual role of such stories as both modernity myths and historical narratives for a multicultural, technological society. Co-sponsored by the Princeton Writing Program, the Department of English, the Program in American Studies, the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies, the Program in Media + Modernity, and the Council of the Humanities.

Free and open to Princeton University and the greater community, ages 14 & up. Greater community must RSVP at pucra@princeton.edu
