via Zoom, 6. May 2021.

Please join Console-ing Passions and the SCMS TV SIG for this special event!

May 6, 2021 @ 3:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

How did /US Weekly/ and MTV contribute to the construction of white Millennial womanhood and postfeminist lifestyle branding in the early 2000s? How did these factors converge to create celebrities out of ordinary people?

Join Erin Meyers (Oakland University) and Amanda Ann Klein (East Carolina University) for a conversation about their recent books, Extraordinarily Ordinary and Millennials Killed the Video Star, moderated by Racquel Gates (College of Staten Island, CUNY). The discussion will be followed by a Q & A.
