Abstract: Wonder Woman and the Reappropriation of Women Warriors of Greek Myth

Wonder Woman #1 (summer of 1942)DragonCon 2015 is almost here and I’ll be presenting new research titled “Wonder Woman and the Reappropriation of Women Warriors of Greek.”

Check out my abstract below for a little sneak peek!

Ancient Greek mythological representations of Amazons tend to teeter between the “noble savage” archetype and fetishized exotic prizes ripe for conquest by male heroes.

Listen to the Recording of ‘Race, Gender, and Sexuality in Cosplay and Fandom’

Dragon Con LogoWe had an amazing turnout at the “Race, Gender, and Sexuality in Cosplay and Fandom” panel at Dragon Con. It was only scheduled for an hour but since we had such an awesome and engaged audience we ended up keeping the panel going for over three hours.

If you weren’t able to make it to the panel, you can now check out the audio recording!

Thank you to everyone who came out to make it the highest attended panel at this year’s Comics & Popular Arts Conference. It was truly exhilarating to be able to talk to so many intelligent people passionate about the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality in comics, cosplay, and geek culture.

DragonCon 2013 and a Look Forward

Daniel-Amrhein-Dragon-Con-2013Dragon Con was amazing. Let me start by sending out a great big thank you to everyone who made it out to my panels. You all packed that conference room and were the best audience I’ve ever had the pleasure to speak to. On Saturday night, we even had a bunch of people hang out for an extra two hours after the panel officially “ended” to chat about gender, race, and sexuality in comics.

Getting the chance to talk to so many intelligent and passionate people about the things I care about was exhilarating. You all made my con. Thanks for being so awesome. Continue reading ‘DragonCon 2013 and a Look Forward’

“Counterfactual Cognition and Ethical Dilemmas: Lessons from Duncan The Wonder Dog” were both quite interesting despite the fact that I Continue reading ‘Dragon*Con 2011 Highlights’
