An Evening with Martine Delvaux (in conversation with Dr. Eftihia Mihelakis)
October 27, 2017
Come hear Martine Delvaux”, author of Serial Girls: From Barbie to Pussy Riot, in conversation with Dr. Eftihia Mihelakis. This event is free and open to the public.
Everywhere you look patriarchal society reduces women to a series of repeating symbols: serial girls.
On TV and in film, on the internet and in magazines, pop culture and ancient architecture, serial girls are all around us, moving in perfect sync—as dolls, as dancers, as statues. From Tiller Girls to Barbie dolls, Playboy bunnies to Pussy Riot, Martine Delvaux produces a provocative analysis of the many gendered assumptions that underlie modern culture. Delvaux draws on the works of Barthes, Foucault, de Beauvoir, Woolf, and more to argue that serial girls are not just the ubiquitous symbols of patriarchal domination but also offer the possibility of liberation.
