Following the presentation, Dr. Halbert will open up the floor to discussions and take questions from the audience.
As an American cultural icon, Superman has been saving the world for more than 80 years, undergoing many changes along the way. Dr. Halbert’s presentation will take audiences on a visual journey that tracks the Man of Steel through literature and film, while analyzing the real-life events and social movements that have shaped him.
