Female Superheroes: What Are Their Real Powers?

February 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Female Superheroes

When Superman first flew onto comic book pages, the Kryptonian set the bar for the future of the medium. Female superheroes also filled those pages from the start, but their portrayal has been a subject of controversy. This presentation examines how women are perceived in popular culture through the lens of comic books and asks what are their real powers?”

Registration and admission are not required to attend, parking is available onsite.

Magdalena Lamarre was a Full Professor of History and Sociology at Miami-Dade College. Since her retirement in 2016, she conducts lectures on Florida’s history, culture, diversity, and social justice. Lamarre earned a BA in History and Secondary Education from Hunter College, a MA in History Education from Stony Brook University, and completed post-graduate work in Sociology and Education at Florida International University.

This Florida Talks program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Sulphur Springs Museum and Heritage Center. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
