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.
