Beyond the Big Screen: No Superpowers? No Magic? No GRAVITY?

Beyond the Big Screen: No Superpowers? No Magic? No GRAVITY? In-Person

Whether it’s The Martian’s being stranded on a hostile planet or Frankenstein’s monster thrust alone into the wilds of brutal society, there are so many books and movies focused on being "alone".  Why do we cheer for the solitary “only one” character to survive by wits and luck, without Marvel magic or super-powers? Join Professor Betsy Stoutmorrill to learn about these various stories and why we invest in these lone characters and root for them overcoming all odds to SURVIVE! 

This event will take place in the South Campus LLC, G-300.
