The Sociologist's Dojo Podcast

Nov 14, 2020

On this Episode of The Sociologist's Dojo Podcast I tackle the subject that was the origin of the blog itself: Superman.

In this Sociological Analysis, I will briefly cover the origins of the character, before going into my experience with the character in both the comics and the films. In the Social Analysis section, I cover Superman's status as an American Cultural product and Propaganda tool, while looking at his relationship with:

  • Immigration
  • Masculinity 
  • and Femininity

Stick around for such questions as:

  1. Would Superman be eligible for DACA? 
  2. Where is General Zod's Legal representation at the beginning of Superman: The Movie? 
  3. Isn't the Phantom Zone  Guantanamo for Kryptonians?
