Tri-C Speaker Examines How Superheroes Reflect Society
Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s an example of modern mythology offering moral and sociological instruction to the community!
Anthropologist Jamon Halvaksz will explore how superhero comic books reflect society and our understanding of the world during an upcoming discussion at the Western Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
The free program — Superheroes and Supermyths: Towards an Anthropology of our Multiverse — will take place from 10:30-11:45 a.m. Thursday, March 30, at Tri-C’s Western Campus Theatre in Parma.

Halvaksz is an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Texas at San Antonio, where he has recently been developing coursework examining superheroes, myths and human diversity.
His visit is part of the Carol S. Franklin Social Science Speakers Series sponsored by the Western Campus Division of Social Sciences. The series provides a forum to enhance awareness of current events and issues relevant to the community.
