Are you a major fan of DC or the Marvel Universe and its female characters: Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman, Black Widow, General Okoye, Princess Shuri or any others in the universe? We are developing an edited collection with interest already from publishers focused on Female Superheroes and their representation in a traditionally male-dominated film genre--action. Potential themes are female representations of power, strength (physically, psychologically, scientifically), as well as female minority representations of female power in superheroes and how they are similiar or different from their male counterparts. We are also interested in exploring how these female superheroes are portrayed when the director(s), producer(s), writer(s) are female.

Seven years later, educators continue to face this challenge of integrating faith and spirituality into teaching about the ecological crisis we face in the twenty-first century.
