Superhero Archaeology: Unearthing the Ancient World in Comics and Graphic Novels

Time: 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Contact: Wayne Rupp, Ph.D. · wlrupp@loyno.edu · 504 865-3687

Location: Miller Hall, Room 114

Guest lecturer Jeffrey Shanks will give a talk entitled “Superhero Archaeology:  Unearthing the Ancient World in Comics and Graphic Novels.”

The superhero genre that dominates modern popular culture ostensibly has its origin story rooted in the pulp magazines and comic books of the 1930s, but the concept of the heroic "metahuman" is as old as western literature itself, with themes and tropes rooted in the mythology and folklore of the ancient Near East and the classical world. This presentation will explore this intersection of the modern superhero genre with ancient and classical culture in its primary medium, comics and graphic novels, from the 1930s to the present.
