On Wednesday, November 1st, Whitworth University will be hosting Jennifer K. Stuller who will be giving her lecture entitled, “Ink-stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology.” Her lecture will explore the many ways in which superwomen are more than simply sidekicks or love-interests.

Jennifer Stuller’s multimedia presentation explores how the modern female hero in mythology breaks through the traditional gender standards in media and pop-culture. With comics, television and film, her lecture will discuss female heroes from the 1930’s to present day and wrestle with the implications of women’s representation in media. This skillful and sought-after speaker will call her audience to think deeply about pop-culture, gender images, media and storytelling.

Stuller is a feminist pop-culture historian, a writer, and media-critic. She is the author of Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology, and the editor of Fan Phenomena: Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She has been published in BBC News, Bitch Media, and Geek Monthly. Stuller is also a Co-Founder and former Board President of GeekGirlCon.
