Welcome to the Canadian Studies Centre


| 611039 VU/2 How the superhero tradition became multicultural | 

Instructor:Christian Reyns, PhD (University of Alberta)

In this course we will first study comics mainly through the superhero genre and its critique through new versions of superheroes (Batman Returns, Watchmen, ….). Superheroes have been around with us for a long time. From Hercules to Achilles to Zorro to Superman and Wonder Woman, they entertain us yet they also move us and serve as strong models or counter-models. The persistence of their “myth” shows how meaningful they are.
Deadline: February 21, 2016
