June 2017: Comic Con?!?!

Yes, Comic Con! Bridging psychological research and pop culture.

Dr. Alexander and two DU alumni (Zack Lomuto and Katherine Miller) presented at Denver Comic Con! There presentation was entitled, That Could Be Me!: Diversity, Inclusivity, and Representation in the Media. The panel discussed problematic themes of hyper-masculinity, stereotypical behavior of minority groups, over-sexualization, and emphasis on traditional gender roles in comics and their associated media. The presentation also highlighted the importance of appropriate representation and inclusivity.

And no, Dr. Alexander did not cosplay this year. ;)
