The Romance of Work: Gender and Aspirational Labor in Contemporary Culture Industries

In Person
During GEW

Critical scholarship investigating the modern cultural and media industries must take seriously the gendering of digital labor. Drawing upon her recent research on the women’s magazine, advertising, and fashion blogging industries, Dr. Duffy shows how discourses of creative autonomy, commercialism, and community simultaneously challenge and reaffirm social hierarchies of gender and class. Emergent forms of gendered creative production may be understood as aspirational labor, highlighting the potential for these activities to provide social and economic capital while keeping female content creators fully immersed in the consumer culture.
