New Podcast: The Scam of Shame
TOTAL PLAYTIME: 12 MINUTES
In this piece entitled, The Scam of Shame, I employ Literary and Gender Theory to attempt an understanding of the concept of shame vis-a-vis female identity generally and gendered expressions of identity specifically.
Even though the intro stipulates the presence of two visual texts: Kissing Jessica Stein and the L Word, the analysis focus more on the latter.
This podcast is part of a bigger literary article which is in the works.
