Professor Heather K. Love (UPenn) “The Last Extremists”

This podcast features a lecture recorded at the second SouthHem Seminar Series in October 2017. This series is concerned with questions of taste, value and cultural capital.

The rise of transgender icons from Laverne Cox to Chelsea Manning to Caitlyn Jenner, the runaway success of award-winning shows like Transparent (2014-) and Orange Is the New Black (2013–), and the popularity of books such as Janet Mock’s Redefining Realness (2014) and Maggie Nelson’s The Argonauts (2015) have resulted in what the critic Susan Stryker has called an “utterly transformed” media landscape. Over the course of a decade, formerly minor representations have achieved both popularity and acclaim. In this podcast, Prof. Love considers how recent transgender and genderqueer representations are shaped by new conditions of production and reception, with special attention to dilemmas of legibility.
