How Can Fandoms Influence Our Ideas of Gender?
[CANCELLED / POSTPOSED DUE TO VENUE ISSUES AND ILLNESS]
We apologise for any disappointment but due to unforeseen and unresolvable circumstances we've had to cancel this event for the time being.
Part of the festival of questions.
One of the most peculiar themes of recent years is how the relationship between masculinity and feminity is changing. In examing how 'My Little Pony' appeals to an adult audience, this event seeks to explore if, and how, modern culture is altered by the presence of these cultural deviants.
Speaker: Andy King is researching historical portrayals of gender in graphic novels and has completed an undergraduate degree in history on the topic. He has also written a number of blog posts on My Little Pony and attended conventions.
This event is FREE.
