The Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is an annual gathering of scholars, students, policymakers and practitioners to exchange ideas and nurture groundbreaking research. This year’s Congress is being held at Concordia University in Montreal, with “connected understanding” as its overriding theme.
“The Neo-Liberal Superhero Soldier” was the title of a lecture by Lori Crowe, of York University, on June 2nd at the Congress. Crowe argued that Hollywood superhero movies reproduce and promote militarism through their weaponry, fashion and narratives that emphasize neo-liberal values.
This lecture was recorded by Tariq Jeeroburkhan.
