What is your first thought when hearing someone is “sexy”? What images spring to your mind? Why and how? Do you relate it to bodies, desires, genders, or sex? Do you think “sexiness” is a kind of “sexism”? Or are you trying to deconstruct this association and find more possibilities to open our senses?
We’re soliciting work in three categories:
-Literary analysis using Feminist Theory and Gender Studies
e.g. Reading Chang Xiao-Hung’s Fashioning Modernity
- Reviews of mass media, films, literature, etc.
e.g. The representation of sexiness in K-pop music
e.g. Voguing category: sex siren
e.g. short stories reconceiving sexiness
