What does it mean to be a millennial woman? A free public lecture Tuesday, Feb. 25, will attempt an answer through an examination of cultural representations by millennial women across media.
Drama professor Michelle MacArthur will delve into the insights provided by books, plays, films, online posts, and television series into a much-maligned demographic. Drawing on research from across social sciences and humanities disciplines, she will elucidate how women engage in the circulation — and disruption — of “millennial myths.”
“Voices of a Generation: Representation of Millennial Women Across Media” is set for 6 p.m. in the Performance Hall, SoCA Armouries, 37 University Ave. East.
Dr. MacArthur holds a fellowship from the Humanities Research Group, which is hosting this presentation. Her research focuses on four main areas: equity in theatre, theatre criticism, contemporary Canadian theatre, and feminism and performance.
