Godzilla: The Monster as Modern-Day MythExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, October 15, 2014 — 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM EDT

Dr. Jeff Wilson will discuss Godzilla along with a viewing of the 1954 original film.

More than just a city-stomping reptilian film star,  Godzilla began as an allegory for the Japanese war  experience, especially the horror of the atomic bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Through lecture and a 
viewing of the original 1954 Godzilla film, we will explore the multiple meanings that a monster can take in an age of religious, social, and scientific anxiety.
