Smack it in the Air: How Female Hip-Hop Artists are Taking Back the Booty (IF..Series)
The Interdisciplinary Feminisms (IF..) series presents Alyssa Woods (SOFAM) to speak on Smack it in the Air: How Female Hip-Hop Artists are Taking Back the Booty. This talk explores the recent trend of female artists who have appropriated and re-imagined the “booty video”. Employing strategies of parody and hyperbole, artists such as Beyoncé, Lily Allen, and Nicki Minaj have reclaimed the discourse surrounding the female body from within the hyper-masculine norms of hip-hop culture.
This talk takes place in THINC Lab, 2nd floor, library.
