Superheroes in the ’60s: Comics & Counterculture

A new lecture sponsored by the Adelphic Education Fund:

Graphic artist and comics historian Arlen Schumer explores the origins of the superhero tradition, its personification American ideals and values, and how these attitudes and portrayals changed during the 1960s, using comic book panels and pages in a large-size projection format that graphically communicates the sequential nature of comic book art itself. And while that art reflected the dominant motifs of the 1960s, from the futuristic idealism of Infantino to the cinematic realism of Adams, the superheroes changed, from establishment conservatives like Superman, The Flash and Green Lantern, to counterculture liberals like Spider-Man, Dr. Strange and Green Arrow.

  • Date: Thursday, September 23

Film Series: “Dig!”

2005. USA. Dir: Ondi Timoner. With Anton Newcombe, Courtney Taylor-Taylor. Documentary. 107 min.

Poster’s Note: This movie kicks serious ass and is very underrepresented in the Wesleying poll to the right and the Cine-File column. It’s the best movie this week (and maybe this calendar)?

Shot continuously over seven years, DIG! captures the love/hate relationship between The Dandy Warhols and The Brian Jonestown Massacre — two rival rock bands attempting to revolutionize the music industry in a manic quest fueled by vanity, genius, narcissism, and heroin.

DATE: Tonight, September 22
PLACE: CFS, Goldsmith Family Cinema

‘Free Hugs’ is Back

Lilah Sloane ’11 wants to make each of your Wednesdays a little brighter!

The Free Huggers are back!  Come to Usdan (either in front of the building or at the bottom of the stairs to the marketplace) Wednesdays from 12-1 and get a hug, give a hug, or simply see them and smile.

Free Hugs is a worldwide movement where people stand in public places with a sign that says “free hugs”.  It is not affiliated with any other group on campus and the goal is to make people’s days a little bit better.  If you’re interested in giving hugs, just show up. :)

Have a good day!

Date: Wednesdays, starting Sept. 22
Time: Noon – 1:00 PM
Place: USDAN
