About this deal

The postfeminist ideal foregrounds successful careers as well as sexual agency, creating certain pressures for women to “have it all”; lucrative jobs, relationships, family and conventional beauty. Elana Levine brings together writings from feminist critics that chart the current terrain of feminized pop cultural production. JAMS professor Elana Levine is scheduled to present on her new, edited book, Cupcakes, Pinterest, and Ladyporn: Feminized Popular Culture in the Early 21st Century at the Women’s and Gender Studies Brown Bag, Thursday, March 3, 2016, Noon to 1PM, CRT 535B.

CUPCAKES, PINTEREST, AND LADYPORN Feminized Popular Culture in the Early Twenty-First Century edited by Elana Levine University of Illinois Press, 2015 296 pp. Fifty Shades of Postfeminism: Contextualizing Readers' Reflections on the Erotic Romance Series / Melissa A.

In doing so, the chapter argues that while Devious Maids is a complex text that portrays Latina womanhood in some nuanced ways, the postfeminist and postracial sensibilities of the show discourage most audience members from engaging with the potentially transgressive aspects of the series. Bodies” addresses the physical appearance, health and spirituality of female bodies as sites of labor and pleasure.

Part documentary and part female-centric porn, the movie recounts the filmmakers' experience wrangling an inexperienced crew and "performers.

There's also a lot of anti-porn feminists from the second wave of feminism in the 1970s who say that porn is wrong and porn is degrading. In porn there are girls of literally every body type, and the men seem to think they're all beautiful. Scholarship on feminized popular culture in this century must evolve with shifting definitions of the term “woman” as well as the influence of post-feminism, which adds a complex layer to conventional expectations of femininity. Though often dismissed as frivolous or excessively emotional, feminized culture in reality offers compelling insights into the American experience of the early twenty-first century.What is left unremarked is popular culture’s concentration on youth, as if the main consumers are in their 20s-30s, post-college or new mothers.

JOHN CABOT UNIVERSITY PRESS JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY PRESS LEHIGH UNIVERSITY PRESS LEXINGTON BOOKS LIMELIGHT LIMELIGHT EDITIONS LONE STAR BOOKS LYONS PRESS M.Incisive and compelling, Cupcakes, Pinterest, and Ladyporn sheds new light on contemporary women’s engagement with an array of media forms in the context of postfeminist culture and neoliberalism. This is one of the issues with which Cupcakes, Pinterest and Ladyporn engages, set out in Elana Levine’s comprehensive introduction. This chapter analyzes the content and reception of the first season of Devious Maids within an institutional context. As these essays show, the imperative of productivity currently permeating feminized pop culture has created a generation of texts that speak as much to women’s roles as public and private workers as to an impulse for fantasy or escape.

Chapters on Bethenny Frankel and the Kardashians address the obsession with self-branding and entrepreneurship as not just a mark of financial success, but of being a successful woman.As Levine incisively points out, “many sites of masculinized popular culture (such as professional football, or ‘quality’ TV dramas) escape gendered labeling” (Levine 7). With essays on erotica, nail polish blogs and cupcakes, this collection is a fascinating analysis of American culture and how notions of gender, class, sexuality and race intersect. By foregrounding the complexity of gender in a postfeminist culture increasingly opposed to gender-specific analysis, Levine reminds us that these projects of feminist media analysis are as important in the 21st century as they were during the early days of feminist studies. A note to readers: Bold and uncensored, The Austin Chronicle has been Austin’s independent news source for over 40 years, expressing the community’s political and environmental concerns and supporting its active cultural scene.
