Capstones are an established part of undergraduate curricula. Often a requirement in degree programs, these investigative and research-based projects stress relevance and practicality. They are, thus, often promoted as necessities; they demand critical thinking, clear analytic writing, methodological application, and for those projects collaborative in their structure, teamwork and negotiation. Capstones encourage inventive and imaginative thought, reinforcing activities we associate with what we might call the ideal “humanist” – philosophically and ethically engaged, socially aware, and community minded.

Caped Crusaders: Re-'fashioning' Superheroes in the 21st Century

updated: 
Friday, June 16, 2017 - 10:57am
NeMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Whether in print, film, or other media, the superhero costume invites audiences into another world. From Batman’s cowl to Wonder Woman’s tiara, a superhero's costume creates an ethos that cultivates collective imaginaries of a particular character’s power, their reputation, and their iconography. While heroic dress does not always define the hero, it does play a certain part in constructing the identities of characters throughout time. This panel seeks to investigate and dissect the aesthetics of superhero dress and how their costumes have been adapted for the 21st century. Participants are invited to reflect on the following questions: What role does fashion play in the adaptation and re-imagining of heroes?

Papers for this panel are invited to reflect the following questions: how are ideas of the non-human transmitted in literature, art, and other media and how can we assess them? What trends, novel methods, gaps, or fallbacks are present as humans attempt to understand the other? Further, how do narrative strategies across media or time periods compare or contrast?

Possible approaches to investigating narrative strategies may include but are non limited to:

-Evocations and portrayals of the non-human in literatures
