Comics Arts Conference #10: Feminist Marvels      
Room 26AB      
J. Richard Stevens (University of Colorado, Boulder) examines how Marvel is positioning Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel in the lead-up to her film as a credible feminist icon in order to more explicitly address the interests of a rising female readership. Chris Richardson (Young Harris College) argues that Bourdieu's notion of the field, a place in which actors compete for status through symbolic capital, allows us to better understand how Jessica Jones, as a strong, independent, heroic woman, a victim of abuse, a vulnerable and insecure lover, and the product of two men's imagination, has dramatically reshaped the industry in subtle yet important ways. Samantha Langsdale (University of North Texas) sees Marvel's new run of Spider-Woman as feminist in its defiance of the trend in mainstream superhero comics to characterize motherhood as untenable for superheroines by presenting a markedly woman-centered model of motherhood.

The Production Designer: Architect of Imagination

And following that, the designer must gather and organize an army of artists who, over months or years, in plaster or in pixels, will somehow render that design for the big screen. Panelists include Françoise Audouy (Logan, Dracula Untold), Hannah Beachler (Moonlight, Black Panther), Oliver Scholl (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Suicide Squad), and Patrick Tatopoulos (Justice League, Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice), moderated by John Muto (Home Alone, Species).
