Danielle Lindemann

Dominatrix: Gender, Eroticism, & Power
March 19, Tuesday
6:00pm
Room 102 Wishcamper
USM Portland campus
 
On Tuesday March 19th Women & Gender Studies will host author Danielle Lindemann talking about her new book Dominatrix: Gender, Eroticism, and Control in the Dungeon (University of Chicago Press, 2012)
 
Dr. Lindemann's book draws from extensive fieldwork and interviews with professional dominatrices in New York City and San Francisco to offer portraits of pro-dommes, their work, and their clients.  Upending the idea that these erotic laborers engage in simple exchanges, Ms. Lindemann?s work contributes to a more sophisticated understanding of gender, sexuality, and hierarchy
The analysis in Dominatrix shows how gender, power, sexuality, and hierarchy  shape all our experiences.
 
Danielle Lindemann, PhD in Sociology from Columbia University, is a post doctorial research scholar at Vanderbilt University. Her work relates to gender, sexuality, and culture, particularly as they relate to identity and to occupation.
