I've been selected as one of the speakers at Ignite Charlotte! You can find the full schedule and details here. My 5-minute talk is titled "If You Hate Justin Bieber, Patriarchy Wins." I've blogged about this topic before, but this time I'll be speaking in more lay, accessible terms. So, bring your friends! I promise I'll make you reassess some of your most taken-for-granted assumptions about pop music, teen girls, and how feminists ought to subvert/resist patriarchy!
(I'm resisting the temptation to make myself a complimentary badge that says "I'm Mystifying"--the dialectical complement to "I'm Enlightened." But I don't think that's the forum for Adorno jokes.)
