UW professors take classes to ‘a galaxy far, far away’

On December 13, Assistant Prof. Bryan Carr was featured in a story by the Oshkosh Northwestern about UW system professors using the “Star Wars” movies to teach everything from physics to geology. “We think about mythology as this kind of dusty, forgotten thing,” said Carr. “We don’t really think about what our modern mythology is. It’s stuff like ‘Star Wars.’ It’s superheroes.”
