What The Femme: Costuming the Final Frontier - Virtual Class
Join the hosts of the Women at Warp podcast for an exploration of the good to the god-awful in costuming the women of Star Trek!
January 26, 2021
Science Fiction can provide a venue for the liberation of female characters from societal norms, but that doesn't always translate into the costume department. The various incarnations of "Star Trek" provide a stellar canvas to examine over 50 years of Federation women and what insight their costumes affords their characters. How appropriate is a catsuit in the workplace? Who were those miniskirts designed for, anyway? What would a truly practical costume for women engaged in space exploration look like? Join the hosts of the Women at Warp podcast to address these questions and more in a fun conversation from a feminist Trekkie perspective.
Zoom meeting details will be emailed to ticket purchasers shortly before the scheduled event.
