BITCH, WITCH, WHORE: REPRESENTATIONS OF WOMEN IN WORD AND IMAGE
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: JOANNE HOLLOWS (NOTTINGHAM TRENT)
An Inter-disciplinary Postgraduate Conference
University of Newcastle, 26 May 2006

Both historic and contemporary representations of women in word and image are understood, all too often, through the madonna/whore dichotomy: from the delicate Victorian waif to the red-lipsticked vamp of fifties film noir; from Molly Bloom to Buffy. This conference will consider iconic representations and enduring archetypes of women, addressing their persistent appeal and exposing their limitations. What makes certain versions of femininity archetypal? Can they be subverted, challenged, and/or reclaimed?
