Entertainment and Comic Expo (April 26, 2014)

Kyler Rasmussen and I presented a talk at the 2014 Calgary Entertainment Expo on revenge in film. The presentation was based off the first study of Alishia Alibhai’s doctoral thesis (a content analysis of popular films featuring revenge as a major theme) and Kyler’s work exploring motives for revenge. The audience was great and we enjoyed sharing our work with the public.
