The Dialectics of Cross-Dressing by Ciara Cremin
Man-Made Woman

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 16:00 - 18:00
Time Zone: Europe/London
Local Time: Wednesday, September 20, 2017 16:00 - 18:00

Dr Ciara Cremin, University of Auckland, is in the UK in September promoting her new book 'Man-Made Woman' and offering public lectures here in the North-East.

On July 27th, 2015, Colin Cremin overcame a lifetime of fear and repression and came to work dressed as a woman called Ciara. Wearing full makeup, a blouse, a black skirt, and pantyhose, Cremin walked down the steps of a lecture theater in front of a hundred seated students and, without comment, gave her lecture as usual. In Man-Made Woman, Cremin charts her personal journey as a male-to-female cross-dresser in the ever-changing world of gender politics.

Interweaving personal narrative with political discourse, His lecture will give a vivid exploration of gender, identity, fetishism, aesthetics, and popular culture through the lenses of feminism, Marxism, and psychoanalytic theory. Cremin’s anti-moralistic approach dismantles the abjection associated with male-to-female cross dressing, examines the causes of repression, and considers what it means to publicly materialize desire on one’s body. Man-Made Woman is an experiment that ultimately draws the presenter and the audience into a conflict with their material, ideological, and libidinal relationship to patriarchal-capitalism.

With an emancipatory and empowering voice, Cremin interrogates her, his, and our relationship to the gender binary. In light of recent debate surrounding transgender bathroom rights in the United States/ Europe, Man-Made Woman is a deeply personal account that offers timely insight for anyone interested in contemporary trans-politics and queer theory.
