The Winona State University Athenaeum Series will host “Super Bodies and Secret Skins” at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, on the second floor of the Darrell W. Krueger Library.
Communication Studies Instructor Scott Daniel Boras will analyze the influential relationships between depictions of popular culture superheroes and the substantive, malleable and real possibilities of human body transformation. Boras will examine ways people project and develop possible future versions of humanity along with inspecting how these projections are borne out of everyday, less than super experiences.
All WSU Athenaeum Series events are free and open to the public.
The Athenaeum hosts events that explore and enhance the intellectual life of the University and the region through lectures, readings, performances, discussions and other events. By bringing together scholars, performers, students and community members for intellectual discussion and the sharing of cultural experiences, the Athenaeum reflects the importance the University places on the humanities, the arts and the sciences.
