Join us for Viva McGlam? a “Doing Gender” lecture by Terre Thaemlitz
Terre Thaemlitz offers a visual and cultural critique on the relationship between glamour and transgender communities in response to the following inquiries: is glamour particularly related to gender expression? Is transgender “glam” a critique or a mere capitulation to the social biases of opulence-driven haute couture glamour? Given that the majority of both transgendered and cisgendered women are not able to achieve an image of glamour, and that feminist visual theories have unpacked many social processes behind representations of the female body, can these theories also elucidate representations of transgendered bodies?
