Upcoming Hunger Games Symposium in Philadelphia

By April 30th, 2012

Hunger Games Symposium 2012V. Arrow’s unofficial map of Panem puts Philadelphia in District 13 . . . which makes it a not inappropriate spot to hold some Hunger Games presentations, wouldn’t you say?

On May 17, The Center for Media and Destiny and The Center of Media and Information Literacy are co-sponsoring Hunger Games symposium “Are the Odds in Our Favor?: The Hunger Games on Fame, Fashion, and the Fate of Humanity.” The symposium will be held on the campus of Temple University, and admission is free. Get all the details here.

I’ll be there, giving a talk on the differences between the book and film, the film advertising, and the affect of both on where we readers/viewers stand in relationship to the Games, in a presentation titled: “Are We Katniss . . . Or Are We the Capitol?” (I’ll also have some Smart Pop buttons on hand.) But I’m more looking forward to hearing the other four speakers present–including past Smart Pop contributor Barry Vacker.

Hope I’ll see you in the audience!

    They already set a date for the reseale of Catching Fire! Super excited. I think it looks great, actually. Some of the casting I was questionable about (Lenny Kravitz) didn’t even bother me in this trailer and I’m actually on board with them. Jen is going to be a great Katniss. I’m excited!
