About this event

  • 1 hour

Boswell presents an evening with Lilly J. Goren, coeditor of The Politics of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Goren will be joined by anthology contributor Patricia Rodda.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most expansive and widely viewed fictional narrative in the history of cinema. Intentionally or not, the MCU sends fans scores of messages about a wide range of subjects related to government, public policy, and society. Some are overt, like the contentious debate about government and accountability at the heart of Captain America: Civil War. More often, however, the politics of the MCU are subtle, like the changing role of women from supporting characters to leading heroes. In The Politics of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, more than twenty-five leading scholars examine these complex themes. It’s the first book to look expansively at politics in the MCU and ask the question, "What lessons are this entertainment juggernaut teaching audiences about politics, society, power, gender, and inequality?"

Lilly J. Goren is professor of political science at Carroll University. Patricia Rodda is assistant professor of political science at Carroll University.
