iTunes U features Superheroes

I was poking around in the iTunes store and I saw something in the iTunes U section called ‘Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy‘. The Description is: “Exhibition dates: May 7-September 1, 2008. The symbolic and metaphorical associations between fashion and the superhero are explored in this compelling exhibition. Featuring movie costumes, avant-garde haute couture, and high-performance sportswear, it reveals how the superhero serves as the ultimate metaphor for fashion and its ability to empower and transform the human body.”

These are videos featuring such comic book luminaries as Paul Levitz, Danny Fingeroth, Alex Ross, John Cassaday, Michael Uslan, Adi Granov and others. The videos are between 21 minutes and one hour. The titles include ‘E Pluribus Unitard: Notes towards a Theory of Superhero Costuming’, ‘The Boys in the Hoods: The Costumed Vigilante as Urban Dandy’ and ‘The Gods of Greece, Rome, and Egypt Still Exist-Only Today They Wear Spandex and Capes!’ I will be checking them out as soon as I can.
