GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- “Other student instructors see the opportunity to teach as a way to impart knowledge of their favorite topics. Stephanie Martin, a senior comparative literature major and president of the Experimental College club, is instructing the course Teaching through Superheroes for her third semester. This course examines the literary and cultural relevance of superheroes and villains.

“‘I love superheroes,’ Martin said. ‘Watchmen has a lot of philosophical themes, Wonder Woman has queer and BDSM themes, V for Vendetta has themes of anarchism. So, we get to have a lot of political and theoretical discussions.’”
