Superheroes! 18th Century Literature

By:  Dr. Peter Walmsly & Dr. Euenia Zuroski

Saturday November 25, 2017

11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Who gets to be a superhero?  What does a superhero look like to you?  Did you imagine someone like Superman, Iron Man, or Thor?  Everyone has a favourite fictional superhero, but did you know that superheroes are everywhere, making the world safe for regular people like us?  Have you ever wondered about what makes a hero, and where they come from?  Or if there can be girl heroes as well as boy heroes?  Join us and find out, as we explore how ideas of the hero have shifted over time - don't miss out on inventing a superhero that suits you!

Let's Talk Science will run a post-lecture hands-on activity after the lecture, from noon - 1:00 pm.
