Jazz Speaker Series: Angela Latham on Posing a Threat

Presented by American Jazz Museum at American Jazz Museum, Kansas City MO

Oct 26 2017
Jazz Speaker Series: Angela Latham on Posing a Threat presented by American Jazz Museum at American Jazz Museum, Kansas City MO

Looking at American theater, Latham summarizes major arguments about censorship and the ideological assumptions embedded within them.

New definitions of American femininity were formed in the pivotal 1920s, an era that vastly expanded the “market” for sexually explicit displays by women. Angela J. Latham shows how quarrels over and censorship of women’s performance — particularly in the arenas of fashion and theater — uniquely reveal the cultural idiosyncracies of the period and provide valuable clues to the developing iconicity of the female body in its more recent historical phases.
