CAC special guest Genevieve Valentine (Catwoman), author of the novels Mecahnique: A Tale of the Circus Tresaulti and Persona, writer of Batman and Robin Eternal and Xena, and winner of the Crawford Award, presents a talk: "'The Empire of a Wicked Woman': Catwoman, Comics, and the History of Power." Catwoman has been a lot of things in the last 75 years: thief, hero, crime lord, community advocate. But Selina Kyle isn't just Gotham's first moral gray area; she's part of a long tradition of women in power, both on the page and off-and there are some surprising parallels in how their stories are told. Valentine explores some elements of those narratives amid Catwoman's various incarnations, parallels, triumphs, and absences.
