Marcia Ochoa: “‘La moda nace en Paris y muere en Caracas’: Fashion, Beauty and Consumption on the (Trans) National”
March 9, 2011 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Professor Ochoa works at the conjuncture of the ethnography of media, modernity in Latin America, and queer/transgender studies. Queen for a Day: Transformistas, Misses and Mass Media in Venezuela (Duke, forthcoming) is a queer diasporic ethnography of femininity, spectacle, and nation in Venezuela.
