Christelle Le Faucheur, PhD candidate in the History Dept., UT Austin will present a talk entitled: "Consuming the femme fatale in Kora Terry (Georg Jacoby, 1940): National Socialism's doubled vision of woman." The National Socialist regime and ideology are characterized by a strong ambivalence about sexuality and its representation, especially in the popular mass medium of feature films. Through a close reading of the melodramatic story of the two opposite twin sisters Kora and Mara Terry, thisThe goal of the symposium is to provide an informal setting for graduate students and faculty to present their work in progress and to explore the application of diverse theories and methods to the study of gender, women and sexuality. We welcome participants from all disciplines who find that these topics emerge in their work.
