Rachel Schaevitz, Postdoctoral Fellow in the Public Humanities at UNC-CH will present a Lunch and Learn on the Rise of the Heroine in American Film.

This lecture will trace the rise of powerful female characters in American film across generations and genres. Historically, genre conventions have dictated the roles female characters play in films, from “the final girl” in horror films to “the girl next door” in romantic comedies to “damsels in distress” in children’s films. Yet, Hollywood is responsive to shifts in public sentiment and the rise of the heroine in American film reflects changing attitudes about what roles women and girls should hold in the world.

This event will be held at Walnut Creek Country Club, 508 Lakeshore Drive Goldsboro, N.C.
