Femmes of Power: Figuring Queer Femininities

Posted on November 12th, 2011 by

Hej! Don’t miss Ulrika’s lecture on Femmes of Power!

When: Tuesday, November 15, 7 pm
Where: Confer 128

What is femininity? What makes it queer? How do we understand subcultural fashion and performance across different national and regional contexts? What is femme activism? Drawing on research and images produced for the book Femmes of Power: Exploding Queer Femininities (Serpent’s Tail, 2008), Dr. Dahl will talk about her ongoing ethnographic research on femininities and about her collaboration with visual artist Del LaGrace Volcano and the more than 50 femmes from 12 cities in 7 countries that are featured in their internationally reviewed book.

Dr. Ulrika Dahl, Södertörn University, Stockholm, and Fulbright Hildeman Fellow at Gustavus.
