New Videocast: Is Adam Lambert's Androgyny a Text of Anxiety?
In this piece of Gendering the Media with Brikena Ribaj, I thought I would talk about the text of androgyny and the anxiety it may inspire.
The questions I raise are: Does the text of androgyny inform anxiety? Why?
I talk about American Idol, Pat Buchanan, make-up and eyeliner, and of course, literary theory. Because they all go so well together, I find.
Incidentally, I do not watch American Idol but I did notice the healthy amount of press that Adam Lambert generated. Naturally, I was curious and made it a point to see snippets of the finale.
The text of gender was indeed worthy an episode, I found.
