Martine Delvaux in conversation with Dr. Eftihia Mihelakis and signing «Serial Girls: From Barbie to Pussy Riot» (Between the Lines Press).

Co-presented by the Faculty of Arts Speaker Series, the Gender & Women’s Studies Program and the Department of Classical & Modern Languagues (French) Department at Brandon University.

This event is free and open to the public.

Everywhere you look patriarchal society reduces women to a series of repeating symbols: serial girls.

On TV and in film, on the internet and in magazines, pop culture and ancient architecture, serial girls are all around us, moving in perfect sync—as dolls, as dancers, as statues. From Tiller Girls to Barbie dolls, Playboy bunnies to Pussy Riot, Martine Delvaux produces a provocative analysis of the many gendered assumptions that underlie modern culture. Delvaux draws on the works of Barthes, Foucault, de Beauvoir, Woolf, and more to argue that serial girls are not just the ubiquitous symbols of patriarchal domination but also offer the possibility of liberation.

Martine Delvaux is a professor of literature at the Université du Québec à Montréal, specializing in feminist theory, and is the author of four novels, including «The Last Bullet is for You.»
