In this episode our speakers are concerned with the way femininity is performed through the body. Whether through the digital medium of social media and the digital sex work economy or through performance poetry, the way bodies perform femininity draws attention to the complex and contradictory nature at the heart of the ideal.
We hear from Eve Froude from the University of York, Sarah Merton from London South Bank University, and Maria Manning from University College Cork.
