Feedback form is now closed.

Join the Faculty of Arts as we welcome guest scholar Dr. Patricia Soley-Beltran to IDays. Dr. Soley-Beltran will be presenting on Gender images in Fashion Advertising.  

An insider within a closed industry, this talk brings together the personal, the academic and the political to analyse fashion models as cultural icons. Combining thoroughness with humour, the model is exposed as a disposable goddess, a sort of lay trinity manifesting itself as a standard for female imitation, as an object for males’ desire and power display, and as a vessel for cultural ideals reigning over all. The rules encrypted in our daily images are decoded to expose commonplaces related to ethics and aesthetics, norms and transgression, body and knowledge, love, sexuality and affect. 

Seating is limited and on a first come first served basis. (Approx. 300 seats available)
