Due to the overwhelming response, the 2014 Academic Festival will be held on both April 2 and 3. Faculty members Linda Legters and Riaz Lalani are the co-chairs of this exciting annual event.
The theme of the 2014 Academic Festival is “Super Men and Wonder Women: What’s Your Superpower?” There is certainly a level of levity and fun in the theme and it is designed to capture the interest of both students and the academic community.
Wednesday’s keynote address will be delivered by Bill Rosemann from Marvel Comics, who has worked on most of the iconic properties in the comics industry such as Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Ironman, and Captain America. He will speak about the superhero as a metaphor and of the many social issues addressed by the industry.
Thursday’s activities will be anchored by a documentary film screening followed by a Q&A session by members of the film’s creative staff. More details will be provided at the All College Meeting on December 11.
