Supergods and Slayers

Presented by Jason Winslade.

What do we learn from our modern day mythologies? What do our popular icons tell us about what it means to be human, to be adults, men, women, parents, lovers, warriors, magicians? By studying the stories and figures of popular culture, particularly superheroes and characters of fantasy and science fiction, we can identify the ideas and philosophies that can, consciously or unconsciously, influence our lives and determine our actions and values. In this workshop we will discuss the impact of these notions on ourselves, our communities, our nation, and our culture.
