This roundtable for the NEMLA 2013 conference, Boston, MA, 3/21-3/24, will examine recent tv/movie musicals (e.g., Moulin Rouge, Chicago, Smash) as sites for interrogating gender and sexuality, emphasizing how these products delineate the potentials to revise or challenge traditionally gendered power dynamics. To what degree do these works invite postmodern engagements with feminist practice? Does the frequent depiction of empowered women, or of women who use sexuality in a powerful way, reaffirm or resist normative practice? 300 word abstracts by 9/30/2012 to Andrew Schopp
NOTE: This is a roundtable, with up to 6 participants, thus presentations will be limited to 10-12 minutes.
