Ethics Bowl Discussion: She-Hulk and the City
Time: 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Location: Bulger Communication Center South
Lecture presented by, Roy Cook, PhD, Department of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota.
John Byrne's early-1990s run on the Sensational She-Hulk includes many subtle interactions between the fictional world that the She-Hulk inhabits and the actual city within which these comics were produced. Cook will explore the very real and very intentional overlap between these two, and discuss how it complicates and enriches our understanding of fiction within serialized narrative art.
Sponsored by the Philosophy Department, School of Natural and Social Sciences, and Ethics Bowl Club.
