Dr. Sacco is one of Europe’s leading intellectuals, known for his willingness to challenge common assumptions about the nature of political and cultural power in this age of radical globalization. In his reading of the Batman series of motion pictures, Dr. Sacco draws attention to the immensely powerful discourse on self and society that unfolds with popular film, a locus for intense political debate which is not recognized by its viewers as anything more than simple entertainment. In this provocative talk, Dr. Sacco will present his insights into the Batman movies and the odd resonance between American and Korean popular culture.
