GUEST SPEAKER: MAGDALENA LAMARRE – FEMALE SUPERHEROES: WHAT ARE THEIR REAL POWERS?
Don’t miss guest speaker Magdalena Lamarre as she presents a spirited discussion about female superheroes, their portrayal in pop culture and impact on society. Lamarre was a Full Professor of History and Sociology at Miami Dade College until her retirement in 2016. During this special presentation, she’ll examine gender differences in the portrayal and perception of male and female superheroes. Superman vs. Wonder Woman? When he first flew onto comic book pages, the Kryptonian made superheroes the alpha for this medium. Female superheroes also filled those pages from the start, but their portrayal has always been the subject of controversy. This presentation examines how women are perceived in popular culture through the lens of comic books. Lamarre will discuss gender stereotyping and objectification of women and address two major questions: What are the real powers of female superheroes and why do I look like this?
