The Reframe: Rethinking the Candle
(0)
$9.72

However, “history is itself a system of meaning that operates across a media-techn...

Judith Bulter’s theory on gender performativity in conversation with TV series Pose.
(0)
$9.72

The television series Pose (2018), created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Steven Canals is an American TV series influenced by the American documentary film Paris is Burning (1990). Paris is Burning documented the ball culture in New York during the mid-to-late 1980s.

Holocaust Commemoration Culture: The Influence of Mass Media on Cultural Memory and Trauma Tourism.
(0)
$10.33

This paper will focus on how The Anne Frank House is positioned within commemoration culture in relation to trauma tourism, the commodification of memory, and the concept of post-memory. The Anne Frank House is an intriguing case study because it differs slightly from other memorial sites in so far as it is a memory site as well as a monument – it is the actual place of trauma instead of a place that got assigned to represent trauma, which changes how visitors interact with the space because t...

Orlando (1992): A Visualisation of the Performativity of Gender
(0)
$10.33

The film Orlando creates a simplified version of Virginia Woolf’s story by focusing predominantly on how the main character, Orlando, is positioned in society in relation to other people as a man and how that changes once he transitions to woman. The film is a visual representation of how gender is a ‘role’ one can take on and ‘perform’ accordingly while simultaneously being critical of the implications that come with ‘doing’ a certain established gender. The contextualisation of ...

(0)
$10.93

I will specifically loo...
