My Mind is My Power: Comics, Science, and American Society
9:00 & 10:00 p.m., Digital Adventure Theater, Level 2

Science has been and continues to be a defining characteristic of superhero culture. In this presentation, Chambliss will explore the evolution of science as a cornerstone of the superhero narrative.

BIO: Julian C. Chambliss is Professor of History at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. His teaching and research focus on imagined and real urban landscape in the United States.

Traveling Exhibit:
Identity: An Exhibition of You

Located on Level 2

Designed and developed by Philadelphia’s The Franklin Institute for the Science Museum Exhibit Collaborative, Identity will travel to museums nationwide. The exhibit focuses on how science can shed light on three areas of our identity – physical, psychological and social — and enlists, among other things, the work of ground-breaking science, personal art and stories and even the work of an Emmy Award-winning musician to create an engaging journey through the science of human identity.
