I’m currently writing my senior thesis on the abject Other as seen in the female body and the colonial subject, and this really helped point me in the right direction as to how those topics intersect!!

Comment on Understanding Abjection: An Analysis of the Monstrous-Feminine in the Art of Cindy Sherman by Cultural Contexts: Review and reflect on at least one live performance and/or one film that you have watched within the duration of this brief.

It also got me looking at Cindy Sherman’s artwork, which I wasn’t familiar with. Many thanks!

Comment on Kicking Butt in a Mini-Skirt: The Complicated Feminism of Buffy the Vampire Slayer by Rob https://megankarius.com/academic-papers/feminism-in-buffy/#comment-92 Tue, 21 Jun 2016 16:33:41 +0000 http://megankarius.com/?page_id=34#comment-92 Interesting read, although the swirling waves and degrees of feminism can be confusing to someone not immersed in that world of thought. One thing that I’ve noted about Buffy that I never see mentioned in scholarly work is the egalitarian nature of the violence in the show. While programs with strong female characters exist before and after Buffy, I’ve never seen a show where the female protagonist is permitted to be on the receiving end of violence to the degree that Buffy is. By this I mean that the fight scenes are made to be exciting, with the outcome not a forgone conclusion. Buffy, while essentially a superhero, is also not invulnerable, and can and is defeated from time to time. This aspect of the show doesn’t receive enough credit. For the dramatic gravitas of a fight scene to be realized, doubt about the outcome must exist. This truth is almost always sacrificed when a female protagonist is in battle. Creators shy away from depicting a female character on the receiving end of violence, presumably because they don’t wish to be seen as condoning real violence against women. Somehow, Whedon managed to avoid sacrificing dramatic tension and showed Buffy really struggle, sometimes losing, without any backlash. I think he deserves real credit for this aspect of the show, and perhaps it speaks to the feminist nature of Buffy that it rose above that constraint and chose good storytelling over gender role bias. Of course given my limited understanding of the intricacies of feminism, that could be wrong!

I am myself busy with performing art and believe that Sherman’s work is one of the best examples of socially charged works of art. The link to Brechtian alienation is very interesting, I wish there was more about that!
